Wonderful account of her life which the most in depth look at her artwork I have seen. The collection of her artwork would be enough to make it one of my favorite books. Read full review

Review: Unexpected Journeys: The Art and Life of Remedios Varo

User Review  - Jane - Goodreads

Illustrations were gorgeous but text was dry. She is one of my favorite painters; I love surrealist art. The cover painting is entitled "Exploration of the source of the Orinoco." Read full review
