Dora Gordine (8th June 1895 – 29 December 1991) was an Estonian Modernist sculptor who spent the majority of her career in Britain. She was internationally recognised by contemporary critics in France, Germany and Britain such as Marie Dormoy, Luc Benoist and Robert Tatlock. She noted in November 1938 that she was ‘very possibly becoming the finest woman sculptor in the world.’
