    Olga Sacharoff exhibited for the first time in Barcelona at the Galerías Layetanas, in a group exhibition held in 1922. In 1929 she held her first individual exhibition at the Claridge Gallery in New York and, a year later, she exhibited at the Bernheim-Jeune gallery in Paris.
    Olga Sacharoff's painting evolved from cubism to a very personal primitivism with which she articulated her own iconographic world that was critical of the morality established at the time, especially with regard to the position of women in marriage. She was an undervalued and partially forgotten artist, although in the 21st century she recovered and claimed herself as one of the great avant-garde artists. Her roots in Catalonia, which were so important for her personal life and her work, are indisputable and explain very well why she is so well known and appreciated in Catalan lands.
