|Man Ray's photo of Dora Maar, 1936|
Probably best known as Picasso's lover and muse for seven years, Dora Maar was actually a famous painter and photographer in her own right.
Many of her fashion photographs incorporate surrealistic elements
and her nudes allude to a subtle eroticism.
In 1934 she travelled to Barcelona and London and 'her attraction to what might seem the antithesis of her fashion and avant-garde photographs', Dora Maar photographed 'the street life of modest and often impoverished people.'
This is as far as I have read in the book but with chapters titled Love Among The Surrealists, Love and War and After Picasso, Only God, I am truly captivated, inspired and can't wait to find out more about Dora Maar.
