In the heyday of modernism, the Swedish artist Greta Knutson (1899 1983) was a respected member of the avant-garde in Paris. She was married to one of its most famous proponents, Tristan Tzara, and stayed on in France for the rest of her life. Although her exhibitions were favourably reviewed by her contemporaries, Greta Knutson's body of work has never been given the attention it deserves. In this timely publication, Martin Sundberg delves into the archives in an attempt to paint a more complete picture of the artist s life and work. She was a versatile draughtsman, painter, sculptor and writer who was influenced by her times but always sought to develop her own approach independently of the trends. Her creative output was prolific and is here presented comprehensively for the first time.
