Interview with Retired Pro Soccer Player, now Sports Personality Renee Washington – Sports As Told By A Girl
Renee Washington is a woman who wears many different hats in the sports industry, growing up around professional athletes to become a great one herself. Washington is a 3-time All-American D1 soccer player who hung up her professional cleats for the other side of the camera. She is now a sports personality. Working for ESPN, Fox Sports, MLS Philadelphia Union, WNBA/NBA, and hosting her own podcast “Beyond the Headlines“, Washington continues to use her platform to inspire others while still reaching her own goals.
She spoke with us about her career journey and being able to find a work-life balance. More importantly, how she has used her platform as a Black woman to speak up through these trying and historical times and much more!Tell us a little bit about yourself, where did your love of sports develop?
I come from a very big sports family. My father played professional basketball overseas, my uncle played in the NFL, and my cousin was a professional boxer. My mom played basketball in college, and I closely kept up with my two older sisters, who were the ones that I was always chasing after. My parents gave us a chance to play literally every sport growing up and for me, I stuck with soccer, basketball and track. Those were my three main, and then soccer was without a doubt, my best sport.
Everything in my life has been around sports. A lot of our family trips and vacations and my best memories come from something involving sports. Whether it was playing around the house or actually playing in tournaments and games.
How did you get your first start in broadcasting?
Working as a reporter, anchor, and host for multiple companies and sports teams, how have you been able to manage it all?
Yeah, it’s honestly a very complicated story, but I will give you the short version of it!
I actually have an undergrad degree in public relations and double minor in Spanish and psychology. My grad school degree is in education leadership, and none of that has to do with sports reporting specifically.
As I was in grad school, I started trying to find any job I could get into. I started working with the Lehigh sports media department. I was creating highlights, doing camera work and stuff for games, doing freelance writing. Just started doing as much unpaid work that I possibly could to start building up my resume.
From there I did have one opportunity that took a chance on me. It was an internship, which led to my first full-time job, where I stayed for the first two years of my career, literally learning all aspects of being an MMJ and anchor. I was doing news and sports…it really allowed me to get a lot of reps, a lot of experience.
From the beginning, I wanted to learn, I was just a sponge. I had a tremendous group of people around me that were giving me so much inside information. The irony is I actually applied to that internship for a copy editor role. My then supervisor was like, ‘You would be so bored in this job, you know, based on your ambitions in our conversation. How about we create an internship for you?’.
So it literally was me just applying, trying to get my foot in the door, and from there I was able to turn that internship into a full-time job.
What is one of the proudest moments in your career?
Balance is a big key part of it, that definitely allows me to do so many different things…I don’t have a Monday to Friday, 8 to 5 schedule. Even when I was in school, I always had multiple internships and they were always overlapping. I was a two-sport athlete. I’ve always been a juggler, so that’s just how I operate best. In terms of balance, I’ve always tried to figure out some sort of structure.
I’m very big on trying to set aside time that I’m able to be off, to step away from my phone, my computer from work to just be present and to decompress. Whether it’s stepping away to watch cheesy Hallmark movies…just even being able to watch a game as a fan where I’m not working while I’m doing it.
I’m very big on things like, I read a lot, I listen to a lot of music, all different genres. Whatever it may be, depending on the mood, depending on the day, as well as just finding time to just get away.
One of the things that actually helps me is, because of the different areas I work in, they all provide me balance. I’m not doing the same work all day, every day I’m sometimes behind a computer, sometimes out and about, sometimes at a game.
I think balance is key, and that’s the biggest thing to being successful in general. Whether you are working one job or countless jobs, whatever it may be. Figure out a way to be at your best as much as possible, so that you can make sure that you’re as productive as you can be coming into any work.
This past year has been emotional for many when it comes to racial inequality, the Black Lives Matter movement, Black women leading the country at the voting poll to change in the recent presidential election. How have you used your platform as a Black woman to inspire or teach others through these historic times?
I actually have a number of moments, but I think as a whole…The underlying theme is the moments where I have people reach out, and in some way mentioned that I’ve helped them, inspired them, motivated them, encouraged them.
I’ve had people that have reached out all over the country, over the world! I’ve had people reach out from Nigeria, Canada, the UK, that I’m like, how the heck did you ever come across my work?!
I always say more than any social media post or anything that’s what’s most validating to me.
That the work I’m doing is extending so far beyond what I can even see and know. And it’s empowering.
Those moments when someone’s reached out saying that a story I did helped inspire them in some way. Or they were able to learn from an interview or how they were so moved by something that I said…That’s very encouraging for me because that’s the biggest reason why I do what I do. It’s all to use my platform to help give back, to help hopefully inspire someone in some positive way.
It’s not about me, and I will always say that, but it’s the truth. It’s really not about me. It’s about using my talents and the opportunities I’ve been given that God has given me to help others.
Oh, yeah. I mean, I think that’s something that a lot of people that I spoke to had that struggle of, ‘How much do you say? And how much do you do?’. Because we’ve always been taught that you have to separate, especially on social media.
This past year, especially with everything that’s gone on, going back to George Floyd and the fight for social justice, I was one that has always been saying, if I’m going to sit back and not speak up in these moments, ‘How is that helping me in any way, forget who I am as a professional? How is that helping me as a person? How is it helping my family?’.
I’m a Black woman first, and I’ve been a Black woman longer than I’ve been anything else in this world! So it’s more important to me, to speak up on those when it directly affects the core of who I am. I have a brother, a father, siblings, a nephew that’s growing up in this world. I have relatives that look like the very people that are out fighting for their lives. Can’t sit back and act like this doesn’t affect me.
In my opinion, if a network, a job, a company or even a person is going to write me off because I speak up on one in peace, justice, and equality I don’t want to be friends with them. I don’t want to work for them. It’s not where I want to be. I will never bend who I am for a job. I know I’ve taken upon myself to speak up openly.
I’ve dedicated a number of shows…a summer show that I was doing called “Redefining Us” on social media. Simply having conversations around the elephant in the room. Racial, sexism, discrimination, any sort of conversations around just growing who we are as people.
I think for me again going back to how I want to try to help others. I can’t be quiet in some of the biggest moments where we need to have voices that are stepping up and speaking out on the same topic.
I’m hoping that I can continue to help advocate for the fact that you can be, more than an athlete, more than a reporter, more than whoever or whatever your profession is…more than your job. At the end of the day, it’s when it affects you are as a person, you have to speak up.
As we celebrate Black History Month, do you have a favorite Black journalist or reporter that you look(ed) up to as you grow your career?
Best advice for Black women in sports?
I definitely have, over the years that have inspired me in some way.
The biggest names that always come to mind, David Aldridge, who is actually a friend of mine now, Cari Champion, Pam Oliver. For me, not only them but also athletes that I’ve looked up to when I was growing up. People like Serena Williams that have been showing that it’s okay to be a successful Black person in sports.
I think that for me I have people I look up to for different reasons. Someone like Cari Champion, the way that her careers evolved. Jemele Hill, how she openly has been able to speak up on her opinion and honestly show that you can speak up. Even if you do have the president or anyone that is going to speak against you for it, you’ll be okay.
When it comes to your career what is your end goal/mission?
To summarize everything I would say is to always be, strive to be 10 times better than everyone around you. And that’s something that my parents taught me as an athlete growing up and in soccer being in a sport where I was always being judged for what I look like or judged for reasons other than my talent…And it’s something that I still carry with me to this day. That’s why I do so many different things and wear so many different hats, you know, I feel like the moment you get complacent and settle for just getting by and doing the bare minimum is the moment you start to go in the wrong direction.
You need to celebrate those small victories, I’m not saying you only dream big. Of course, you celebrate the small victories along the way, but don’t settle. And that’s in all aspects, professionally, socially, in dating, financially, always strive to continue to learn and do more in some way.
I think even just the stimulation of always thinking and learning really goes a long way in helping you to continue to evolve as a person. Whether that’s reading more books or going out and growing your network, going to different events. There’s so many ways to do it. Doesn’t always have to be overly strenuous.
You have to hold yourself to a higher standard for your reputation, for how you dress, how you talk, how you look. They are always watching. People are always, especially as a Black woman. You can’t leave any room for anyone to doubt you. They still will try, but that’s why you continue to just grow and learn. Just keep investing in yourself, because nobody else will. And so you have to make sure you’re continuing to turn a corner in your evolution as a person, but definitely as a sports media personality.

My biggest thing for me is what that goal looks like, what does my career goal look like, more than just the job itself. I love working on air and all the different roles that I have.
I think definitely for me, being an anchor of a show is something I enjoy the most being able to have different dialogues. So maybe some conversations are more specific to discussing games, previewing games, recapping games, and then maybe some are more specific to like human interests. I just love the flexibility of being on the show.
The biggest thing for me is working in professional sports fully. I prefer to work in basketball, football, or soccer since those are my big three within sports. I think whatever network, whatever station, whatever league, whatever team that may be a career-wise as a broadcaster. That’s my career goal.

Renee Washington – Women’s Soccer CoachFormer La Salle standout Renee Washington enters her second season as the Lehigh women’s soccer graduate assistant. Washington was a star forward for the Explorers, recording more than 100 career points. She helped in the recent surge to prominence for La Salle, which included three straight NCAA Tournaments.
“I am very pleased to add Renee to our women’s soccer staff at Lehigh,” said Lambinus at the time of her hiring. “She brings instant credibility from all of her success at LaSalle. She helped elevate their program to an elite status over the past four years, winning two Atlantic 10 championships and playing in three straight NCAA tournaments. It is our hope she can bring that experience to help our student-athletes achieve the same level of success over the next few years.”
Washington has reunited with Lehigh assistant coach Amy Hough, who was previously an assistant for La Salle. In her first year with the Mountain Hawks, Lehigh posted a school-record unbeaten streak to begin Patriot League play (six games). For the season, Lehigh posted six shutouts and finished the season with a team goals against average less than one. Freshman Grace Correll jumped into the college season and impressed, leading the Mountain Hawks in scoring (11 points) while earning multiple weekly awards after a two-goal effort in a 2-1 win at archrival Lafayette.
A star on and off the field at La Salle, Washington was named a candidate for the prestigious Senior CLASS Award prior to last season. Her decorated career has included endless awards including NSCAA All-America, first team All-Atlantic 10 and All-Region recognition. She recorded 27 points as a freshman (12 goals, three assists) and sophomore (11 goals, five assists) while posting 23 points as a junior (eight goals, seven assists) and 24 as a senior (nine goals, six assists).
“It’s great to be able to come to such a beautiful school. I love everything about this campus,” said Washington. “Lehigh has great academics, so I am thankful to be able to get my graduate degree at such a prestigious institution as this. It is a great opportunity that I definitely couldn’t pass down. ”

NBC4 Names Renee Washington Vice President of News
By Louis Wilson, Special to California Black Media Partners
Global negotiations kicked off this week in Glasgow, Scotland, in what John Kerry, President Biden’s climate envoy, described as our ‘last best chance’ to avoid environmental disaster.
These talks matter to California – so much so that a delegation of elected and government officials led by Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis made the 5,000-mile trip.
The goal is simple: agree to a plan to reduce the emissions that cause dangerous heating. To do that, governments need to end our reliance on fossil fuels, and support less-wealthy nations and communities in their decarbonization process.
We’ve been here 25 times before. The 26th U.N. Climate Change Conference COP26 is a gathering of over 100 nations in search of a solution to the climate crisis. Sadly, since the first meeting in Berlin in 1995, global emissions have increased. By almost every measure, the climate crisis is getting worse. That’s visible to Californians in the record wildfires, drought, and extreme weather that has intensified in the past two years.
The science is clear – something needs to change right now, otherwise the climate will change it for us. The current business-as-usual trajectory is set to make the world somewhere between 4.5 degrees F to 5.4 degrees F hotter than it was before we started burning fossil fuels. That would mean more droughts, fire, hurricanes, famines, climate refugees, and the list goes on.
So far, Glasgow has heard a lot of talk. President Biden and other world leaders touted two ‘major’ agreements earlier this week. One commits to ending deforestation by 2030, and the other to cut planet-heating methane emissions by 30%. But these aren’t binding. They are promises, an invitation to take leaders at their word. Many of these leaders promised to halve deforestation by 2020 back at a New York summit in 2014, a promise that was quietly broken.
Despite the looming catastrophe, a tour of the COP26 premises makes it very clear that at these talks, nothing has changed. The same old faces are here – the politicians, the polluters, the big companies, and people representing privileged and largely white interests.
Companies sponsoring the talks for a seat at the center of the action include one of the world’s largest plastic polluters (Unilever), a bank (NatWest) that has financed billions of dollars’ worth of fossil fuel projects since 2015, and a consumer goods company (Reckitt) whose suppliers included, until very recently, companies tearing down one of the world’s last remaining tropical rainforests in Papua New Guinea.
One of these sponsors, SSE, is currently building a new fossil gas plant, even while hosting a friendly stall touting unproven future technologies that might eventually help reduce emissions. Reckitt, meanwhile, is organizing an official side-event titled ‘Changing Consumer Behaviour,’ which appears aimed at deflecting responsibility onto individuals.
Presumably, the main recommendation will be to steer clear of their products until they can remove deforestation from their supply chain.
While companies that have had a hand in causing the crisis are overrepresented, notably underrepresented are BIPOC communities, or representatives from the worst affected countries. It is, as many have called it, the richest, Whitest COP ever.
That’s a problem ethically, but it’s also a big problem because clearly, ‘business as usual’ hasn’t worked. If we want to prevent the worst of what is to come, we need to focus on the interests of people on the frontlines: those who lost their homes in wildfires this year, or who were forced off their land by agribusinesses, or whose air is being polluted by mining projects. We can no longer prioritize the narrow interests of a very noisy but destructive business community.
This matters for California – the state which has long been a leader in the U.S. on climate action but is suffering the most immediate impacts of the climate crisis right now. If Californians want this state to be liveable for future generations, we need to see through ambitious action at home – but we also need these global negotiations to be a success.
Right now, we’re on track for more warm words, more bold, unmet promises, and more degrees of global heating. Unless this COP and all future climate summits put the worst affected, most vulnerable communities first, we will continue on this disastrous path which will see California and many other parts of the globe become inhospitable for our descendants within generations.

UConn’s Renee Montgomery was married last year. She made the announcement Thursday
Former UConn guard and current Atlanta Dream co-owner Renee Montgomery announced she and wife Sirena Grace privately married back in April 2020 through a story published by PEOPLE Thursday afternoon.
Montgomery, who retired from the WNBA in February 2021, met Grace at an Atlanta Hawks game in March 2019. Grace had gone to the game to sing the national anthem and Montgomery says immediately she was taken away when she first saw her.
“It’s the only game I went to that whole entire season,” Montgomery told PEOPLE. “And here comes a whole goddess.”
So @sirenagrace_ & I did a thing, and by a thing I mean we got married!! We planned on having a gathering w/ family & friends but as you can see, we’re still in a pandemic so we thought it’s time to share our story. Im a whole wife out here @BENBALLER ready when you are https://t.co/MaCqFRk3mg— Renee Montgomery (@ReneeMontgomery) November 11, 2021
The two-time WNBA champion then reached out to Grace, asking if she would be interested in doing a performance for the Dream. The two hit it off and began dating just weeks later.
“It just happened very quickly from there,” Grace told PEOPLE.
On a trip to France in November 2019, Montgomery proposed to Grace kneeling next to a pile of rose petals which spelled out “Merry Me. ”
“I was waiting for her on one knee, playing ‘Marry Me’ by Train,” Montgomery said. “I already told her when we first started dating, if you hear this song playing anywhere that I’m in the vicinity, you better be ready because I’m probably going to be proposing.”
Because of the pandemic, the couple held a private wedding at their home in Atlanta on April 20, 2020. They lit their hallway with lights to create a “makeshift aisle” and had Grace’s cousin conduct the ceremony virtually via Zoom. Friends and family watched live virtually as Grace’s son, Angel, was the couple’s ring bearer, “flower guy,” best man and man of honor. PEOPLE also reported that Grace wore a wedding dress which she had bought after their trip to France, while Montgomery wore a red suit.
“Even though it was a Zoom wedding, and people weren’t actually in person, it didn’t feel any different. I was still crying when I saw her walking down our hallway,” Montgomery said. “When I saw her walking, it still hit me the same that I think it would’ve hit me if I was standing on an altar. I just didn’t know if it was going to feel real or if it was going to feel like it should feel.”
So in 2020, Renee & I eloped via zoom! ♀️ we were really hoping to have a reception with all our family & friends but, as the Pandemic progressed our wish of having everyone there seemed further & further away so we asked @people to help us share our story, thx People! ❤️ https://t.co/ovTIMpA9aJ— SIRENA GRACE (@sirenagrace_) November 11, 2021
The couple told PEOPLE they were waiting for the right time to publicly announce their marriage especially after the pandemic surged through 2020 — Montgomery chose to sit out during the WNBA’s “Wubble” season to focus on social justice reform — and 2021 went by fast, with Montgomery taking over co-ownership responsibilities with the Dream.
Montgomery played at UConn from 2005 to 2009 before being drafted with the No. 4 overall pick by Minnesota in the 2009 WNBA Draft. The 2009 Nancy Lieberman Award winner is tied for second on UConn’s all-time list with 13 assists in a single game (one behind all-time leader and current sophomore Paige Bueckers) and first with 11 steals in a single game.
The 2011 WNBA All-Star played 11 years in the WNBA before officially retiring in 2021. She was named the 2012 WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year while with the Connecticut Sun.
Renee Washington and Sean Gardner
FROM an early age, the Rev. Renee Francis Washington had very clear ideas about right (wearing white gloves) and wrong (messy hair, poor posture). When in restaurants, it was proper to sit perfectly upright while perusing the menu carefully.
“Once, she went to a Chinese restaurant and the waiter said, ‘We have delicious butterfly shrimp,’ ” Beatrice Alley, her godmother, remembered. “She said very seriously, ‘We really don’t eat butterflies.’ “
Ms. Alley added, “When she was a little older, she went to charm school.”
Today, as the senior pastor of Memorial Baptist Church in Harlem — the post she took over when her husband, the Rev. Preston R. Washington, died in 2003 — her notions of right and wrong are still evident. So is her charm school background.
“When she first came to Memorial Baptist, I wanted to know, who is that lady?” said Earlise Vails, a congregant. “She was as sharp as a tack. She was dressed to the nines — the hat, the outfit, the gloves. She was coordinated. I call her ‘the diva pastor.’ ”
Today, Ms. Washington counsels her parishioners against everything from dropping out of school to acquiring too many debts or regrets. One of her favorite messages is: “Don’t talk about things in the past. Move on. Look to the future.”
On that subject especially, she practices what she preaches. Ray Chew, the musical director of the Apollo Theater and a friend, added: “She represents the new approach to how Harlem ministers are doing their thing. She embraces Japanese tourists who are regulars at the church. And she’s hip. She doesn’t seem to be marching to anybody’s drum who’s been before her.”
Even as a widow with five sons in their teens and 20’s, she determinedly marched forward, like someone late for church.
“She was a model of how to conduct yourself in grief,” said Shareema Pringle, a young widow herself and a congregant. “To still carry yourself as a lady versus totally falling apart and staying in bed, which is what you really want to do.”
But Ms. Washington never expected to fall in love again. “I was so busy with my children and the church, I didn’t even think about dating,” she said.The Harlem ceremony drew 600 guests.Credit…Hiroko Masuike for The New York Times
She did begin studying the Bible with another 40-something Harlem spiritual leader, the Rev. Sean P. Gardner, the senior pastor of the East Ward Missionary Baptist Church. Like Ms. Washington, Mr. Gardner is known for being a new-style Harlem minister.
“They both bring a fresh new voice to a hurting community that needs to hear positive messages,” said the Rev. James A. Kilgore, another Harlem pastor.
Mr. Gardner is also an officer in the New York City Police Department, combining biblical and streetwise sensibilities.
“The projects are right across the street from his church,” said Mr. Kilgore. “He empowers African-American men not to be statistics, by letting them know they have the intellect and the strength and the stamina to make it in a tough urban environment. But he does it in a quiet way. He doesn’t look for notoriety. He doesn’t look for the spotlight. He’s just looking to help others.”
Eventually, Ms. Washington and Mr. Gardner began riding together — taking long drives around New York and New Jersey, holding hands in the front seat, headed nowhere in particular. “He was a gentleman, always respectful,” she said, adding: “I fell in love with the sweetness.”
He said he fell in love with her strength.
“She does not like anything halfhearted,” Mr. Gardner said. “Even cooking a Sunday dinner, it’s the whole nine yards: black-eyed peas, sweet potatoes, peach cobbler. She’s old- school.”
And so is he. He always drove and he always paid for dinner. Her sons nicknamed him “a Big Spender and a Man of God.”
In August 2005, Ms. Washington and Mr. Gardner were out riding together but this time he had a destination in mind. He stopped the car outside a store that sells diamonds and turned off the motor.
Last Friday, July 7, Ms. Washington traveled to her wedding in a fleet of limousines full of bridesmaids in black gowns, all of them sliding on the slippery seats at sudden stops, losing their grip on their lime-green calla lily bouquets, matching shoes and cellphones. At the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, the couple said their vows before 600 guests with the Rev. Calvin O. Butts III and the Rev. J. Albert Bush Sr. officiating.
A few days later, Mr. Butts said: “Marriage is such a fragile institution these days, and we need every example of a man and a woman who will be true to their vows. Who else shall a community depend on in this regard other than the ministers?”90,000 Washington, Carrie is … What is Washington, Carrie?

Audio Guide CAPODIMONTE MUSEUM – Seicento – Tourist Guide
The collection of paintings from the seventeenth century of the Capodimonte Museum is truly impressive in its richness and diversity. This became possible thanks to the magnificent work of the Neapolitan school of painting, whose heritage is perfectly complemented here by the prestigious works of artists from other cities.
One of the most revered paintings is the large canvas Flagellazione di Cristo, painted by Caravaggio in 1606 during his first stay in Naples. See with what force and breathtaking drama the contrast between the muscular body of Christ, as if enveloped in an intense ray of light, and the hidden penumbra of the figures of his tormentors will be emphasized.You see how the suffering on the noble face of Jesus further amplifies the rough mines of the two jailers. In the history of painting, there are only a few works that convey the purity of emotions with such power with the help of chiaroscuro alone.
The realism of Caravaggio was taken up by many representatives of the Neapolitan school. In particular, Jusepe de Ribera, nicknamed Spagnoletto. Among his works in Capodimonte, you will surely remember “Drunken Silenus”, who continues to get drunk even after falling to the ground. The playful atmosphere and incredible fatness of the protagonist make this picture one of the most original works of mythological painting of the 17th century.
The classic, elegant and intellectual tone of the Bolognese master Guido Reni in Atalanta and Hippomenus , painted around 1625, is presented quite differently. The artist depicts the beginning of a competition between the invincible hunter Atalanta and the cunning Hippomenos, who distracts his rival by throwing three golden apples on the ground one after another.Atalanta stopped three times to pick up the apples, and so Hippomenus won the competition. Instead of running dynamics, Guido Reni focuses on the intersection of two shining bodies of rivals on a brownish-blue background of earth and sky. Smooth ideal forms complement each other in the play of gestures, smooth and echoing each other as in a dance.
FUN FACT: Among the few women artists in the history of painting, Artemisia Gentileschi was one of the most famous and talented. In the Museum of Capodimonte, you can see her masterpiece “Judith and Holofernes ” , which captures the moment when a young woman with the help of a servant cuts off the head of an enemy, spraying terrifying fountains of blood.While still a girl, Artemisia was raped, so in her paintings the idea of female revenge on men, who are depicted as defeated and humiliated, often prevails.
Our tour of the art galleries of Capodimonte has come to an end. MyWoWo thanks you and makes another appointment in one of the next wonders of the world!

We would like to bring to your attention the new 42nd edition of the Artoteka: “Zinaida Serebryakova”.
Zinaida Serebryakova (1884-1997) – an outstanding Russian artist, a representative of the famous Benoit-Lanceray family.
Serebryakova received her art education at the art school of Princess M. K. Tenesheva, in the studio of O.E. Braz, and then in France at the Accademia de la Grande Chaumiere.
The first big success came to Zinaida Evgenievna in 1910 in Moscow. Her works “Greenery in Autumn” and the world-famous self-portrait “Behind the Toilet” were acquired by the Council of the Tretyakov Gallery at the 7th exhibition of the Union of Russian Artists.
In 1911 Serebryakova became a member of the World of Art association. She works hard and with passion. During this period, Zinaida Evgenievna paints portraits of her family members, friends, creates genre works, the most famous of which is the canvas dedicated to the life of peasants “Whitening the Canvas”.
In 1919, a tragedy occurs in the life of a young woman – her husband Boris Anatolyevich dies. Zinaida is left alone with four children in her arms. From that moment on, a dark streak of failures sets in in her life.
In 1924, the artist left for Paris. She lived in exile until her death. The main pain for her was the separation from Tatyana and Eugene, who remained with their mother in Russia. Only Catherine and Alexander were successfully transported to Paris.
But despite all the hardships, Zinaida Evgenievna constantly worked, creating beautiful images of her contemporaries.
Art Portal offers a new project dedicated to the work of this amazing and talented artist.You can not only familiarize yourself with the detailed biography of Zinaida Evgenievna, but also see high-resolution reproductions of her works, in addition to this, self-portraits related to different stages of her career are collected in a single block.
