Julie Bar. suffers from epilepsy and has a mental disability and is placed in a clinic at a very early age. Her surviving drawings date from 1916 to 1930, the period when she was transferred to the private clinic of Bel-Air. Julie Bar. draws chiefly in lead pencil, in sketchbooks she fills entirely. Her works are organized according to a principle of reiteration: alone or in groups, the subjects (motifs, figures, animals) are repeated in identical fashion.
