As part of the Church of Beauty’s “52 Days of Beauty Challenge”, here is a painting by Tamara de Lempicka. I saw this piece on exhibit in Verona in the Fall of 2015 and the thing that struck me was that her fingernails are chipped. You can’t really see it in this image, but it really contrasts with the sleek Art Deco-ness of the painting. Everything is so intentional, so slick, so “perfect”. And then…her fingernails. Seeing it in person made me cry.
