Biographical note

Alice (also spelled Alicia and Alicja) Halicka (1895-1975)--Polish painter, illustrator, set and costume designer--moved to France in 1912, marrying Polish artist Louis Marcoussis in 1913. While influenced by the Cubist and Surrealist art movements, Halicka continually experimented with new styles and subject matter, and, owing to a connection made through the artist Raoul Dufy, designed textiles, as well. In 1937, during a three year stay in New York, Halicka designed sets for the George Balanchine/Igor Stravinsky ballet, "Baiser de la Fée," and costumes for a Broadway musical. In 1946 Halicka published a memoir, "Hier, Souvenirs."
