“1927, 1928, 1929 were the happiest years of my life. Why? Because they were productive. A good staunch courageous pal – Anne [Dangar] – and the feeling I was really getting somewhere with my painting. The ‘woman’s role’ was reduced to a minimum. I could work every day at my painting and there was the joy of discovering Paris in our own way.”
