MARIE LAURENCIN (Paris 1883 - 1956) PROFILE OF A YOUNG WOMAN

Marie Laurencin was born in Paris and attended the Lycee Lamartine until the age of twenty. She was determined to become a painter and studied drawing at night before attending the Academie Humbert. There she eventually made the acquaintance of Braque, and through him she met Picasso and Apollinaire. Although surrounded in her formative years by Cubist painters, Laurencin created her own style of pale, airy works, principally watercolors and pastels. Laurencin was also very accomplished in the applied arts, creating prints and illustrated books; designing stage sets and costumes, and becoming involved in interior design.
