Tamara de Lempicka dedicated herself to creating still lifes after fleeing a war-ravaged Europe for Los Angeles. Executed in 1941, Plante Grasse et Fiole is an outstanding example of Lempicka subverting the painting genre, which historically excluded women. Plante Grasse et Fiole will be offered as a highlight of the Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Day Sale in New York.
