British sculptor Dora Gordine was born in Russia, but was of Latvian descent and grew up in Estonia. Her year of birth is given in various sources as 1895 or 1896. The birth year given by us comes from the Tate Gallery in London. Gordine studied music and art in Paris. After her marriage to Gilbert Richard Hare, she moved to London where she was introduced to London’s higher society, and whose members became her exemplars. Two of her siblings, Nicholas and Anna, were murdered in Tallinn in 1941 by the Nazis.
