B. France, (1907-1997)
Born Henriette Theodora Markovitch, Dora Maar (b.1907-1997) was a French photographer, poet and painter. She studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and then the Académie Julian in Paris, and went on to become important in surrealist cafe circles: she had her first publication in the magazine Art et Métiers Graphiques in 1932, and presented her first solo exhibition at the Galerie Vanderberg in Paris. Though Maar is often remembered as Picasso’s romantic partner and muse, her work has recently received renewed critical attention. Her work has been posthumously exhibited at the Haus der Kunst, Munich, the Centre de la Vieille Charité, Marseille, the Centre Cultural Tecla Sala, Barcelona, Centre Pompidou, Paris, and most recently at the Tate Modern, in London.
