Marie Laurencin (French, 1885-1956
Marie Laurencin was a painter, designer and illustrator. Although she befriended the Avant-Garde painters and poets, her style was unaffected by modern movements. The artist's own creative work remained untouched by such theoretical demands; it shows mainly lyrical motifs like graceful, dreamy young girls in pastel coloring and soft shading. This color-sensitive inventiveness leads to a variation of repetitions of form and motifs. Her study of Persian miniatures and Rococo Art aided Laurencin in painting graceful young women and their charming mannerisms.

She achieved a specifically feminine aesthetic by her use of pastel colors and curvilinear forms. Laurencin, when painting her tender visions, attempted to reaffirm feminine seduction and to insist on the creation of a visual vocabulary of femininity in her art.

Marie Laurencin’s works are in the permanent collections of international museums worldwide including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hermitage, Saint Petersburg, the Tate Gallery, London , the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Chi-Mei Museum, Taiwan. In 1983, on the one hundredth anniversary of Laurencin's birth, the Musée Marie Laurencin opened in Nagagno Prefecture, Japan. This museum is home to more than 500 of her artworks and an archive of her personal effects.
