Catalogue Note

'Marie Laurencin is the poet of painting and the painter of poetry. [...] With its pinks, blues and all the other hues of the rainbow, [the artist's œuvre] is a celebration of love and joy, but also a tender yet serious tribute to human nature, its dreams and spirits, as well as its fascinating need for irrationality'

Flora Groult (in Marie Laurencin (exhibition catalogue), Galerie Daniel Malingue, Paris, 1986)
