Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Greta Knutson or Knutson-Tzara was a Swedish modernist visual artist, art critic, short story writer and poet. A student of Andr Lhote who adopted Abstraction, Cubism and Surrealism, she was also noted for her interest in phenomenology. Knutson was the wife of Romanian-born author and co-founder of Dadaism Tristan Tzara. Born in Stockholm, Greta Knutson studied at the Kungliga Konsth gskolan, and settled in Paris, France during the early 1920s. It was there that she began frequenting Lhote's studio and became his disciple. It was also in France that Knutson met Tzara, reportedly in 1924. She married him on August 8, 1925. The couple had a son, Christophe, born on March 15, 1927 at Neuilly-sur-Seine.show more
