The Green Bugatti


Autoportrait (Tamara in the Green Bugatti), 1925, Oil on wood, 35 x 26 cm. Private collection.

The funny thing about this painting, which is one of my favourite paintings in all the world, is that Tamara de Lempicka never owned a green Bugatti, but a yellow Renault. But she said, she dressed like a green Bugatti, and the Bugatti like her, and that was all that mattered.
