Paule Vezelay PortraitIn 1926, the British artist Marjorie Watson-Williams moved to Paris, where she adopted the name ‘Paule Vézelay’. By the early 1930s, she had become an active member of the Parisian avant-garde.

In France, Vézelay lived for some years with the Surrealist artist André Masson, and mixed with many of the most significant artists of pre-war Paris including Kandinsky, Mondrian, Miro, Magnelli, and her close friends, Jean Arp and his wife Sophie Tauber-Arp.

In 1934, Vézelay was invited to join the group Abstraction-Création and exhibited in several significant pioneering exhibitions of non-figurative art in France, Italy and Holland. Abstraction-Création was an association of artists formed in Paris in 1931 to advocate abstract art and promote formal purity and non-objectivity. Although the association eventually grew to include over 400 member artists, initially about 40 artists with varied ideas and practices were involved, including Piet Mondrian, Jean Arp, Marlow Moss, Naum Gabo, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Kurt Schwitters, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paule Vézelay.
