Skierniewice 1897-1970 Paris (Polish/French)
Esther Carp is born near Warsaw in a family of musicians. His father was a violinist, a painter and a photographer.
Esther Carp studies in Vienne in an Art school before going back to Paris in 1925.
In 1931, the merchant Leopold Zborowski organizes an exhibition for her. Arranged as mosaic her work reminds the cubist sructure. That same year she leaves France for Poland.
In 1941, after her first paranoïa fit, Esther Carp is sent to hospital. While at war, this incident may have saved her life, as she was hidden in hospitals.
As she is getting back to her parisian lifestyle she has another paranoïa fit in 1954, she accuses her hotel manager of persecution and anti-semitism. She's sent back to hospital. Back in Paris she finds a small studio boulevard Saint Germain from which she's quickly evicted.
