LAURA'S VISION BOARD

Siri Derkert (1888–1973) is a pioneer of Swedish 20th century art. Her early cubist paintings are attributable to international modernism, while her later work for the Östermalmstorg underground station (1965) in Stockholm marked a radical change in the notion of public embellishment. 

Her works for public spaces often deal with the peace movement and feminism – issues that are as relevant today as they were for her generation.
