‘Marlow Moss’ by Art Quick Look

Video (9:15): ‘Art Quick Look’ writes, ‘Marlow Moss was a gender queer, Jewish, female artist who charged the course of European modernism’ and then he discusses at a couple of Marlow Moss’ works.

Marjorie Jewel “Marlow” Moss (1889 – 1958)
was a radical lesbian and a British Constructivist artist who worked in painting and sculpture. Marlow Moss studied at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1917 to 1919; she cut her hair short and started wearing men’s clothes. Moss moved to Paris in 1927 and studied at The Académie Moderne. In Paris she met another woman, Dutch writer Antoinette Hendrika Nijhoff-Wind who would become the love of her life.
