Sárika Góth was a talented artist who grew up in a family of painters. Góth was the daughter of Maurice Moritz Góth and Ada Lowith, both of whom were artists. She was born in Vienna and raised in Budapest, Paris, and Zeeland.
In 1924, Sárika Góth began taking lessons from the French cubist and art theorist André Lhote. Under André Lhote's guidance, Góth studied the principles of cubism and developed a strong foundation in abstract art. Her work exhibits clear influences of cubism, featuring geometric shapes, bold lines, and an aspiration to depict multiple perspectives on a single subject. Nevertheless, her work always remained figurative. Góth held her first exhibition in 1925 at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. After her time studying in Paris, she lived alternately in Amsterdam and Veere. In addition to being an artist, she also worked as an art dealer, specializing in antique furniture.
