Te niewielkie dwie martwe natury Tamary Lempickiej, malowane w USA w latach 40-tych, nie osiągną chyba rekordów cenowych, choć malowane były w stylu przypominającym art-deco. Przypuszczam, że jednak znacznie przebiją cenę rezerwową. Jej prace z lat 30-tych, wśród nich niektóre zawierają pewne seksuale innuendo są zrozumiale ciekawsze i chyba malowane były z większą siłą uczucia i potrzeby.
