In her own words...
Two firsts: My first lithograph, my first year in Paris. I had no studio. So I found the lithograph studio of Mr. Edmond Desjobert. There I had “my” table which turned out to be a new world full of discovery about acids on stones. This simple crayon drawing of frankly Kafkaesque inspiration is the beginner's first step.
