Arma, a French composer, pianist and ethnomusicologist of Hungarian birth, studied the piano with Bartók from 1921-24. "Between 1924 and 1930 he gave many recitals in Europe and the USA and lectured on contemporary music at American universities... The advent of the Nazi regime in Germany forced his move to Paris, where he made his permanent home... he lectured at the Phonothèque Nationale and at the University of Paris (1949); from the 1950s he was associated with the RTF musique concrète group.... As a composer he is known chiefly for his experimental work." Vera Lampert in Grove Music Online.
Marianne Fayol (1908-ca. 2003) was a French painter born in Strasbourg. "Her work is characterized by its long, clean vertical lines and musicality, as well as subtle harmonies of color... She was president of the Union of Female Painters from 1984-1987... Fayol's paintings are included in many private collections in France as well as abroad, and in public collections including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Musée de Strasbourg and the Picasso Museum in Antibes." 1stdibs.com/art/paintings/figurative-paintings.marianne-fayol.
