The gypsies, the people of the circus and the ballet, Diaghilev, Bernard Shaw and the great people of her time have been her models and her friends. As a war artist, she painted on airfields and in factories, and later she studied and drew the Nazi criminals during their last days ... at Nuremburg'.
