Marie Laurencin Graphite Drawing, Female Portrait



Graceful original graphite drawing by Marie Laurencin (1885-1956). Signed lower right with initials "M.L." Marie Laurencin, intimate of Braque, Picasso, Matisse and Appollinaire, was born in 1885. She held a celebrated place in the early part of the 20th century. She lived in the Montmartre district of Paris. Though her early portraits show the imprint of the Fauves and Cubists, her romantic and delicate temperament asserted itself against these schools. Called the 'muse' by her fellow painters, her works are loved for their fragile beauty. Though they may be feminine in subject and execution, the distortion of form and the simplicity of expression mark her for a modern master. In her later years, she became almost a hermit, although mothers with daughters in tow still came to her. She died in 1956.
