Laurencin, Marie

Marie Laurencin was born in Paris in October 1883 and died in the same city in June 1956, aged 72. Faced with failure at school, and already passionate about drawing, she decided against her mother's advice to enroll at the École de Sèvres to learn porcelain painting. In 1903, she continued her studies at the Académie Humbert, where she took courses in drawing, painting and engraving. These years of study enabled Marie Laurencin to break into various artistic circles and rub shoulders with many avant-garde artists. Thanks to her unique style and growing reputation, she became a pioneer of several artistic movements.
