In the Twenties, Norah Borges began to emerge as a promising avant-garde artist, her forays into the aesthetics of the avant-garde and her contributions as an illustrator in the magazines lined up in these currents showed a deep inspiration of innovative features. However, for some reason, her artistic career was diverted known and conventional territories, and, of course, those much less risky.Was there a conscious decision of the artist, an inclination towards a deliberate aesthetic choice free from any criticism? Was it a destiny shaped by the influence of family environment, which led her to follow the mandates of the time? May Lorenzo Alcalá questioned the work and life of this remarkable and neglected artist and proposes, through a careful and thorough reflection, which, flanked by two powerful male figures, her brother and her husband chose to mask her vanguard momentum.
