Mary Ann Caws, Dora Maar: With and Without Picasso, 2001, p.18 variant
 
Dora Maar may be best known as one of Picasso’s muses but she was a talented artist in her own right. In the later 1920s she shared a darkroom with Brassai who persuaded her to choose photography over painting as a career. This image, dating from the early years of surrealism, shows how she experimented with different techniques, scraping and working on the negative and superimposing a photogram of glass bottoms.
