Belgian artist Marthe Donas, who signed her work “Tour Donas”, became part of the international artistic network that arose in Europe following the Great War. She first came into contact with cubism in Paris, and soon took up this new kind of geometrically distilled and universal art in her own work. Despite the male-dominated art scene of the time, she was encouraged to exhibit in Europe and abroad. Though lesser known today, the international revival of interest in this leading and determined figure of modernism, whose intensive collaboration and involvement with sculptor Alexander Archipenko propelled her rise in the avant-garde, is evident in this richly illustrated volume.
