Born into a family of artists, Ingrid Donat grew up between Sweden and Paris. It was in Paris where her artistic career flourished, first as a student of sculpture at the École des Beaux Arts, and later through a meeting with Sylva Bernt, who instructed her in the arts of construction, casting, engraving, painting, and sculpture. She was also greatly influenced by Diego Giacometti, who advised Donat about her sculptural furniture pieces, as well as by the works of Egon Schiele and Germaine Richier. Her vibrant colors and materials are reminiscent of primitive and tribal arts, while the elegant beauty of her pieces is derived from Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles.
