She is the organizer of the independents' fair whose aim is to offer the public works of art rejected by the official betting fair and, thus, allow artists to freely exhibit their works and free themselves from the influence of any jury. Since then, the independents' fair has been representative of major currents of the time, including pointillism, nabism, symbolism, Fauvism and Cubism.

And not in our country, in full freedom, in pure light (1). And that so many people still feel the need to fight us, to insult us - moral slaves: to defile what we cannot achieve -!
