I've been obsessing a bit over Tamara Lempicka lately, the first "glamorous artist". Though familiar with her work for years I really didn't know much of her life and wasn't prompted to until I read a quote by her regarding her "Self-Portrait". It depicts her driving a green Bugatti, when in fact in real life she drived a yellow Renault. When asked about this she responded, "What is important is I dressed like the car and the car dressed like me". And with that answer I totally got her and a new appreciation and perspective was gained.
