During World War II, Vera Molnár (1924, Hungary) was a student at the School of Fine Arts in Budapest. She quickly decided to become a painter and moved to Paris in 1947. Impressed by the paintings of Georges Braque, Jean Hélion, and Paul Klee, she embarked on a quest for simplicity, in contrast with lyrical and mystical abstraction. She became deeply interested in computer programming as from 1968 and returned to hand-drawing fundamental shapes in the 1990s. Her works are featured in a large number of international public collections, including the CNAP and musée national d’Art moderne – Centre Georges-Pompidou. Her work has been shown at the Credac (Ivry-sur-Seine), 49 Nord 6 Est – FRAC Lorraine (Metz), Grenoble Museum, Grand Palais, Digital Art Museum (DAM, Berlin), Ludwig Múzeum (Budapest), and many others. A retrospective of her work was held at the musée des Beaux-Arts in Rouen and Contemporary Art Centre in Saint-Pierre-de-Varengeville in 2012.
