Piasa, Drouot Richelieu, Paris, Les Photographies de Dora Maar, 20 November 1998, Lot 70
Dora Maar (born Henriette Theodora Markovitch) first began photographing in the late 1920s, at the age of 19. She studied both painting and photography before setting up a photography studio in the early 1930s. Maar is perhaps best known as Pablo Picasso’s lover and as the model for many of his significant works from the 1930s and early 1940s. She was the only photographer allowed to photograph Picasso painting the politically-charged Guernica, and her extensive documentation constitutes the sole visual record of the development of this masterpiece.
