Alice Halicka was a Jewish-Polish painter who spent most of her life in France. Her participation in the 1914 Salon des indÃ©pendants brought the notice of Guillaume Apollinaire. During the First World War, she realised cubist still lifes before returning to figuration. During and after the inter-war period, she exhibited at the Salon dâ€™automne, the Salon des Tuileries and the Salon des SurindÃ©pendants, as well as at several international group exhibitions.
