In 1940, she lands only in Algeria, in her in-laws, while her husband is mobilized on the front. She will stay there five years, at first in Oran then to Constantine. Five years in the course of which the Parisian young person is going to dive into the Spanish culture of her in-laws and into the lights, the colors, the landscapes of Algeria. An earth which profoundly influenced her paintin and which continued to inspire her after her return in metropolitan France.
