Marthe Donas

Belgian 🇧🇪 1885 - 1967

Marthe Donas was a cubist and abstract painter who is, today, acknowledged as a leading artist of Modernism. Because of the sexism engrained in the cubist and abstract art movements of the time, Donas often released her work under the pseudonyms Tour d’Onasky, Tour Donas, and M. Donas. Her avant-garde artwork was not largely praised until the end of her life.
