Suzanne Valadon
b. 9-23-1865; Bessines-sur-Gartempe, France
d. 4-7-1938; Paris

Suzanne Valadon was a circus acrobat and a model for artists such as Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Renoir. It was Lautrec who showed her drawings to Degas, who also encouraged Valadon to paint. Valadon probably had affairs with both Lautrec and Renoir; she was also the mother of painter Maurice Utrillo.

Anne Vallayer-Coster
b. 12-21-1744; Paris
d. 2-27-1818

Anne Vallayer-Coster (Costa) was elected to the French Academie Royale in 1770, when she was only twenty-six, due to both the recognition of her talent and still-life painting as a viable artistic genre. Her still-lifes were of everyday and luxury objects - fruits, game, bread and cheese, silver, and glass ware. Valleyer-Costa survived the French Revolution despite enjoying the patronage of Marie Antionette.

Marie “Marevna” Vorobieff
b. 1892; Cheboksary, Russia
d. 5-4-1984; London

Maria Vorobieff, whose early art training was in Russia, went on to live and work at the artist community of La Ruche in the heyday of artistic activity of Montparnasse between 1910 and WWII.

Maria was nicknamed “Marevna” (water fairy) by her fellow expatriate Russian, social realist writer and activist Maxim Gorky. Marevna's daughter, Marika Rivera (1919), was the result of her relationship with artist Diego Rivera.

“Still Life of Fish” illustrates her melding of pointillism, which exploits the perceptive ability of the eye and mind to blend spots of distinct colors into a full range of tones, and cubism, where the subject is depicted from multiple viewpoints. She held her compositions together by basing the layout on the Golden Ratio (the total “a+b” is to “a” as “a” is to “b”).
