María Blanchard
Birth: Mar. 6, 1881
Death: Apr. 5, 1932

Artist. A leading Cubist painter in the early 20th century. Born in Santander, Spain, Blanchard moved to Madrid to become a painter in 1903, and continued her studies in Paris on 1909. During this time she was introduced to Cubism after meeting painter Juan Gris. The following year, Blanchard received a medal in the National Exhibition of Fine Arts for her work entitled "Nymphs Chaining to Sileno". After returning to Madrid for a few years, she settled in Paris in 1916 and won fame with her painting "The Communicant" at the Salon des Independants. In her last years Blanchard switched to a more traditional style and the characters in her paintings reflected the sadness and melancholy of her own life, marked by physical handicaps since birth. Her works are exhibited in Reina Sofía National Museum in Madrid, Hood Museum of Art in New Hampshire and the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, including "Mujer con Abanico," "L'Enfant au Bol, or La Tasse de Chocolat" and "The Convalescent."  (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
