Although a well-known figure, Dora Maar (1907-1997) remains an enigmatic artist. This landmark exhibition retraces the fascinating career of a freespirited, independent Parisian intellectual: from opening her studio and working on her first fashion assignments to engaging with social and political concerns through her street photography, to exercising her surrealist vision and meeting Picasso on the cusp of his creating Guernica, to rediscovering painting later in life and returning to the artistic medium that first captivated her.
