"Who is Dora Maar?"
Usually known as Picasso's muse, she was also a photographer who rubbed shoulders with and influenced the "creme de la creme" of the Parisian art and literary field, leaving her mark on the avant-gardes of the 1930s.
This exhibition produced with the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Tate Modern in London and includes almost 2,000 works which have recently been added to the Centre Pompidou's collections.
This is why the Centre Pompidou in Paris pays tribute to her by offering an exhibition dedicated to her, her influence on her time, and on her work. This exhibition aims to answer the question raised above, by revealing a new facet of the artist, because the retrospective is intended to be complete, starting from her active support for surrealism and ending with her fashion-related work.
The exhibition aims to show the different facets of Dora Maar, including the lesser known ones. Considered as a personality of the early 20th century and a true inspiration for many artists and writers, such as Paul Eluard and Jacqueline Lamba, the exhibition will showcase some of Dora Maar's original aspects.
