In 1928, Pierre Daura and Louise Heron Blair married in Paris. Their social sphere included artists, writers, musicians, gallery owners and critics. Among their entourage was Uruguayan artist Joaquín Torres-García (1874-1949), whom Pierre had befriended and helped settle in Paris in 1926. The Torres and Daura families lived in the same apartment complex in the famed Montmartre district known for its vibrant artistic life full of studios, salons and cafés. During this period, Louise painted several portraits of Torres-García’s daughters, Olimpia and Ifigenia, while Pierre produced several engravings of the young girls, a testament to the families’ friendship and affection.
“In Dialogue” is a series of installations in which the Georgia Museum of Art’s curators create focused, innovative conversations around works of art from the permanent collection. The series brings these familiar works to life by placing them in dialogue with objects by influential peers, related sketches and studies or even objects from later periods.
