Marta Colvin Andrade

Marta was born on June 22, 1915 or 1907(exact year unknown)in Chile. She was the daughter of James Colvin and Elcira Andrade. She studied at La Escuela de Bellas Artes of the Universidad de Chile in Santiago. In 1948 she traveled to Paris, where she had many teachers, including Henri Laurens, Ossip Zadkine and Etienne-Martin. In 1950 she moved back to Chile, but 2 years later she went to London and went to the Slade School of Fine Art. There she received advice from Henry Moore. Starting off her art career she stuck with realism, but later on she began to create more organic forms. These forms imply the growth of living nature. She died in 1995.
