Russian-born Marie Vorobieff, 1892-1984

Acclaimed as the first female Cubist painter, she moved from Russia to France in her 20s and was friends with Chagall, Modigliani, Matisse, and Pablo Picasso. She befriended the poet Jean Cocteau and had a life-long relationship with painter Diego Rivera. She is buried near him in Mexico.
