Leonor Fini : Multitalented Women Artist in Her Era

Leonor Fini (1907–1996) was an Argentine surrealist painter, designer, illustrator, and author, known for her depictions of powerful women.

Fini had no formal artistic training. Her first major exhibition was in 1936 in New York at Julian Levy’s Gallery. Fini was considered part of a pre-war generation of Parisian artists, and outlived most of her artist peers. Surrealist artists in France became very interested in her once she began setting herself up as an artist, and came to know her as important in the movement.
