Leonor Fini | Not A Muse, An Artist

January 29 – May 15 2021

The intent of the show is to bring the spotlight to one of the most talented artists who created an incredibly valuable array of art pieces within the Surrealist canon. We hope to expose our visitors to the life and oeuvre of an overlooked artist, while inviting the viewer to ponder on the unequal representation of women in artistic movements throughout time.
