About Siri Derkert
Siri Derkert was born in 1888 and grew up in Stockholm in a family of seven children. Her mother, Valborg, had been a seamstress, and her father Edvard, initially a Bookkeeper, worked hard to become a businessman in the textile industry in Norrköping. Siri Derkert’s (1888-1973) artistic practice is a part of 20thCentury Art History. Her many works encompass an individual, sensitive interpretation of Cubism as well as a period as a fashion designer.
