1 Review
The adventures that fill the paintings by Remedios Varo (1908-1963) reflect the physical and psychological journeys of her own tumultuous life. Painted with a jewellike palette and old-master precision, Varo's intimate tableaux, rich with details of women's experience, tell fantasy tales of alchemy, science, mysticism, and magic. Fifty color reproductions capture the wit and beauty of her major paintings; numerous black-and-white illustrations document other works and portray the compelling artist with her circle of lifelong friends and admirers. The book is further enlivened by her own voice, conveyed letters and surreal stories. It concludes with an chronology as well as a newly updated bibliography and list of exhibitions.

Gorgeous paintings but dry text. Flipped over text but lingered on the paintings. Read full review
