Henriette Theodora Markovitch (1907-1997) pseudonym Dora Maar, was a French photographer, painter, and poet. At the beginning of 1930, she set up a photography studio on rue Campagne-Première with Pierre Kéfer, photographer, and decorator for Jean Epstein's film, The Fall of the House of Usher (1928 French film). In the studio, Maar and Kefer worked together mostly on commercial photography for advertisements and fashion magazines. In 1936 she met Pablo Picasso and became his lover and muse.
