Vera Molnár (born in Budapest in 1924, living in Paris since 1947), who died on 7 December 2023 at the age of 99, was a pioneer of digital art.

Developed around 1947 in a constructivist frame of mind, her works, enriched by knowledge of the psychology of form and the laws of vision, became plastic questionings of optics.

A cybernetician and then a computer scientist, in the 1960s Molnár developed a mode of production that she called the "imaginary machine", before becoming the first artist in France (1968) to produce digital drawings using a computer linked to a plotter. Until the mid-1990s, she engaged in a systematic exploration of formal families whose mutations she staged, often favouring repetition and seriality.

This new bilingual publication has been completely redesigned. Enriched with new texts, it includes six writings by the artist, an updated biography of her last ten years of production, and a foreword by Vincent Baby, who is responsible for the publication. To date, these texts constitute the most complete corpus available on Vera Molnár's work.

They are complemented by a new selection of images from various private and public collections, as well as works from the artist's studio. In all, 280 works, characteristic of the artist's different periods of work, can be discovered in the book.
