Born in France but raised in Argentina, Dora Maar (1907–1997) was a politically engaged photographer connected to the Surrealist circle in Paris. In 1920, she moved to Paris where she became the assistant of Man Ray and collaborated on photography with Harry Ossip Meerson before opening her own studio. Maar met Picasso in 1935, and they soon began a creative and romantic relationship that would influence both artists’ creative practice. In 1937, a raging civil war in Spain spurred Picasso to make his first overtly political work: the monumental painting Guernica. The painting’s impact was amplified by Maar’s photo-reportage of the creation process. During their years together, the pair would spend summers in Mougins, in southeastern France, with friends—a comfortable routine interrupted in 1939 by World War II.
