Remedios Varo Surrealist Artist from In Wonderland at LACMA III + 29 Faces 9

A while back, I went to the LACMA show In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States.  I did two posts of some images of art that moved me by Remedios Varo.  This is my favorite image of hers that I saw, it's titled "Harmony."  The words here about the artist are the same, but the images are ones I haven't shared before.

Remedios Varo, Armonía (Harmony)

Remedios was born in Spain, but fled to Paris during the Spanish Civil War.  She moved to Mexico due to the Nazi occupation of France.  Mexico is were she spent the remainder of her life.  She generally worked in oils on masonite panels that she prepared herself.  I hadn't seen the artwork of this surrealist artist before this exhibit, I found myself very drawn to her works.
