There is a self-portrait she drew about herself in 1929. In this picture, she shows herself behind the wheels of a sports vehicle. The drawing is symbolic of the modernity and luxury that marked the roaring 20s. Tamara's drawings portray sophisticated, stylish men and women, sometimes portraying their sensual poses, with sculptural faces and bodies. Her picture symbolises an Art Deco style that is gotten from a compound of ancient traditions, and it comes with the Renaissance artist's stamp. The Orange Turban portrait is painted in vivid colours. The drawing typically shows a young woman with a curious gaze, elegant, and intense posture. This is something that Tamara undeniably replicated the most. The painting was painted around June 1935 according to an inscription on the back of the portrait. However, a study indicates that the picture was done around 1945 immediately after the end of the second world war.
All in all, there are eight well-known versions of this drawing, whereby the last was done around 1979. This is more than 30 years after she drew the one that is commonly found in the museums. Tamara desired to include a new drawing style, which, once finalised, she would utilise all through her drawing career. After the completion of the second world war, her paintings were forgotten, only for them to be rediscovered later in the 1970s along with the Art Deco movement. Perhaps, Tamara's best paintings of the 1940s remain to be the Key which she painted in 1946 and the Succulent and Flask which she drew in 1941. These drawings benefit from a specific surreal strangeness. The references in these images, specifically the postcard that seems to be a Rubens drawing which is pinned against the wall shows a modern interest in the Baroque.
As the decade progressed, the La Madonne ronde painted in 1948, and the Orange Turban painted in 1945 indicates how Tamara’s inspiration was growing thin. Tamara Lempicka's love of celebrity and glamour shows how unavoidable she would have been attracted to Hollywood. Around 1940, the Kuffners migrated to Hollywood for an extended period. Here, there is a picture that shows Tamara boarding the Union Pacific train destined for Los Angeles, and she wore a fashionable hat, fur coat, and a gardenia. In 1976, Tamara de Lempicka donated some precious twenty-three of her drawings to the state. Three of these drawings are still available at various museums across the world.
