marie laurencin


I happened upon this beautiful original artwork the other day at a local shop-it literally stopped me in my tracks on the sidewalk. I did not know about Marie Laurencin before this, I am slightly embarrassed to say. Born in Paris, she ran in the circle of Picasso, and became known as one the few female Cubist painters. These particular sketches were done in 1946, 10 years before her death, when she was experimenting with more feminine styles. I'm coveting the one on the left. ;)

(Thank you to Acorn Cottage in West Chester PA for letting me photograph these!)
