The French painter Marie Laurencin has become world famous for her lyrical female figures, portraits and flower still lifes, painted in a light, delicate palette. She was trained as a porcelain painter and then attended one of the many academies in Paris in the first decades of the 20th century: the Académie Humbert. There it was the painter Georges Braque who introduced her to the artistic circle around Picasso, the Bateau-Lavoir. The painter's early work therefore shows the influence of these Cubists. From there she developed her own style. Besides as a painter, Laurencin was active in many other areas; she designed sets, carpets, clothing and fabrics and illustrated books. Her work can be seen in all major Parisian museums.
