The present work represents the part of Sylvia Spicuzza's oeuvre where she explores purely abstract, non-representational imagery. In the image, the viewer is presented with colorful, undulating forms reflecting the abstract style of the Art Deco period in the 1920s. In some ways this mirrors the career of Tamara de Lempicka, often called the 'Queen of Art Deco' for her luxurious portraits, who continued to use the same geometricizing modernist aesthetic even as she moved into pure abstraction in the 1950s and '60s. 11.75 x 8.75 inches, artwork 19 x 16 inches, frame stamped with the artist's signature, lower left
