Leonor Fini - Argentina
Art Brokerage: Leonor Fini Argentine Artist: b. 1907-1996. Leonor Fini's art offers a woman's take on surrealism, which large dealt with male fantasies, by offering a female view of the female body and of erotic pleasures. Fini was one of the more international figures of the Surrealist movement. She was born in Argentina, raised in her mother's home town of Trieste, Italy, and spent most of her artistic life in Paris, where she had her first one-person show in 1932. Although Fini was friends with many of the leading surrealists she never formally joined the movement though she did include her works in several of their International Surrealist Exhibitions. After the Second World War, she had many one-person shows in Europe and America. Although she is best known for her paintings, prints, and drawings, she also created stage designs for operas and ballets. Fini's works are to be found in many important collections of modern art. Her obituary in The London Times stressed her physical beauty, her erotic art, and her legions of lovers, whose names "read like a roll call of the literary and artistic talents of that brilliant age." Many years ago she was published by Circle Fine Art. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
