Marie Bronislava Vorobieff-Stebelska (Marevna)

(Russian: Мария Брониславовна Воробьёва-Стебельская; 1892 – May 4, 1984), also known as Marevna, was a Russian-born Cubist painter. She is internationally known for convincingly combining elements of cubism (called by her "Dimensionalism") with pointillism and – through the use of the Golden Ratio for laying out paintings – structure. She tends to be accredited with having been the first female cubist painter. Though having lived the greater part of her life abroad – her formative years as a cubist painter in France and her mature years in England –, she is often referred to as a "Russian painter". From her relationship with the Mexican cubist painter and later muralist Diego Rivera in Paris she had a daughter, Marika Rivera (1919-2010), who herself went on to become a professional dancer and film actress.

Paul Guillaume (1891-1934)

The French art dealer, collector and publisher Paul Guillaume, was a promoter of avant-garde art and a well-known figure among artists of the early 20th century Ecole de Paris, many of whom benefited considerably from his contacts with rich American collectors like Dr Albert Barnes (1872-1951). He opened his first gallery in 1914 in Paris, with a show devoted to Rayonism. He also bought and sold works by numerous modern artists including Matisse (1869-1954), Francis Picabia (1879-1953), Andre Derain (1880-1954), Modigliani (1884-1920), Chaim Soutine (1894-1943), Renoir (1841-1919), Picasso (1881-1973) and Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1974), as well as the modernist sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957). More of a showman, than his predecessor Paul Durand Ruel (1831-1922), or his contemporaries Ambroise Vollard (1866-1939) or Daniel-Henri Kahnweiler (1884-1979), Guillaume published Les Arts a Paris (1918-35), a review which both interpreted and promoted the artists he handled. He was also one of the first dealers associated with Primitivism/ Primitive Art, notably African sculpture. By the time of his premature death at the age of 42, as well as a significant sum of money, he had assembled one of the finest collections of modern art, including works by Modigliani, Chaim Soutine, Picasso and others. The bulk of this collection was acquired by the French State during the 1960s, and is now on public display at the Musee de l'Orangerie, in Paris.
