Maria Elena Vieira da Silva was born in Lisbon (Portugal) in 1908 in a wealthy family. Her father disappeared when she was only 2 years old. Her mother supported her early artistic-interest. She drew from the age of eleven, and sculpted at 16 years old. She made numerous journeys with her family, these journeys awoke her to the art. The girl joined, naturally, Paris when she was twenty years old. . . .

These pages will undoubtedly make it possible for some of you to associate an image with its title or the other way round, for others it will be a good time to discover more on such and such artist. For the sake of confidentiality – the pieces being no longer available – we won't display neither their numbering or their price.
