Raped by her father at the age of 11, Niki de Saint de Phalle grew up dreaming of becoming a heroine. At the age of 18, she became a top model and made the headlines of Life, Vogue and Harper’s Bazar magazines and got married.

Niki de Saint Phalle also started to sculpt and perform. Thanks to her promiscuous “Nanas”, she was considered one of the first feminist artists of the 20th century. However, this did not prevent her from creating other sculptures of women such as the “Devouring Mothers” who are everything but feminist.
