Dora MaarThe Surrealist artist and photographer Dora Maar, lover to Pablo Picasso for eight or nine years, is celebrated as an artist in her own right at Tate Modern. More than 200 of her works, including rarely seen, privately-owned canvases such as La Conversation 1937 and La Cage 1943, and never-before exhibited negatives, feature in this first UK retrospective of her work. Her documentary style photography from the 1930s, when she was active in left-wing revolutionary groups, shows the effect of Europe's economic depression on the streets of Barcelona, Paris and London. The exhibition also reunites over 20 works from the second half of her life - the camera-less photographs that she made in the 1980s, four decades after all but abandoning the medium.

 

About Tate Modern

Located along the banks of the River Thames in the former Bankside Power Station, originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1947, the architect of Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern opened to great acclaim in 2000. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
