The Artist

Leonor Fini

Perhaps the most fiercely and gloriously independent woman artist of the 20th century was the iconoclastic Leonor Fini. Fini herself never identified as a surrealist and never embraced the term “woman artist.” She detested the misogynistic beliefs of the movement’s leader André Breton and never gave up her freedom to him. Nevertheless, from 1936 until the present, almost all significant Surrealist exhibitions have featured her works.
