#art/#history: fashion icon fash basher - two seemingly disparate attributes that mingled together quite nicely in this heiress author's personality. whilst she was busy doing what her socialite parents didn't want her to do, she also fought racism, contributed to an anthology by the sitwells & effortlessly provided a muse for writers & artists you may recognise (aldous huxley, ezra pound, hemingway, man ray, james joyce & langston hughes). in paris, she explored modernism, dada & surrealism - all the while bedecking herself in african artifacts that became her signature style & propelled her to the head of the avant-garde pack. she must have looked a picture when she worked as a translator for the french resistance. such a brave heart with so magnanimous a soul should never have ended her life destitute in a paris hospital, but that's what happened to the fearlessly fierce nancy cunard, born #otd in 1896.
