Aline R. de Lens was a painter, one of the first women admitted to the Art School of Paris. In 1914, she went to live in Morocco with her husband, André Réveillaud, a lawyer who notably devoted himself to the defence of Moroccans in Fes' court. They lived principally in Meknes, where she dedicated herself to the then named "native" arts revival. Also a writer, it is with a feminist sensibility that she observed the life of Moroccan women and which she portrayed in her works, novels and short stories. Dying prematurely in 1925 at the age of 44, she rests in Fes. In her diary only recently published, Aline R. de Lens expressed the wish that her art should be "simple and sincere". Daughter and granddaughter of doctors, this collection shows her scientific curiosity, and her humour in her effort to make an inventory of even the most surprising formulas.
