Excerpt from Tamara Art Heritage

Lempicka took much inspiration from the movie and photograph worlds of her day. She did not seek to copy them, in a hyperrealist fashion, but rather to capture their new charms, especially with respect to the artificial lighting in studio work. The shape and position of the label appearing under the photo reveal that the cliché comes from a studio belonging to Lorelle, a photographer who, moreover, also made several lovely portraits of Lempicka.
