Zarnower studied at the Warsaw School of Fine Arts, exhibited in 1923 in Wilno (Vilnius) at the “New Art Exhibition”, the first constructivist manifestation in Poland, and in Berlin in the gallery “Der Sturm”. Zarnower, together with Mieczyslaw Szczuka was the founder of the Warsaw avant-garde artist’s group “Blok” and co-editor of the associated art magazine “Blok”, and also “Dzwignia”. She left Poland in 1937 and settled down in New York. This book contains three photo-montages within the book and two on the front and back cover by her. These are part of the cycle of montages she created in the same year with the title “The Defense of Warsaw”.
