Dora Maar

The impossible monologue of Dora Maar

Date: 2018

Description: Henriette Theodora Markovitch was born in Paris in 1907 to a Croatian architect and a Parisian fashion entrepreneur: a fertile environment for the growth of a young woman determined to become an artist.

She grew up in Buenos Aires where she began to paint, but at the age of twenty she returned to Paris and it is the encounter with photography that freed her talent. She was commissioned works from various fashion magazines and adopted the stage name Dora Maar, with which she made herself known throughout Paris. Anti-conformist and talented, she made her way in an artistic world hostile to women.
