This portfolio consists of 36 hand signed etchings and text.
It has two parts:
The Book: The text “Les Etrangers” was written by Juan Bautista Pineiro and translated to French by Francoise-Marie Rosset.
The book is illustrated by 18 original Etchings by Leonor Fini that each one is hand signed in pencil by the artist.
Some of the etchings are printed on full sheets and some are printed with text.
The Suite: In addition to the book there is a separate suite of the 18 etchings when each one is printed on a separate loose full sheet of Japan paper.
Each one of these 18 etchings is also hand signed in pencil by the artist and also stamp with Leonor Fini dry stamp (face of a cat).
The portfolio was printed in 1976 in a limited edition of only 186 examplares but from them only 50 were printed on vellum de Rives paper with an extra suite on Japan paper, like this one.

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.
