    Most folks who have taken an Art History 101 class in the past 15 years are familiar with Frida Kahlo Fewer however have heard of the remarkable Spanish woman who became one of the foremost surrealist artists of Mexico I used to teach art survey courses so I have some reason to know Varo explores the details of life relishes scientific observation technology biology and a sense of discovery through her paintingsThe reproductions of Varo's work are uite good and capture some of the richness of her techniues This book is also a good scholarly introduction to her work and a significant contribution to modernist art history Hopefully this book will inspire people to go see Remedios Varo's work in museums and encourage young scholars to consider women's contributions to Surrealism

    This book was the product of the first US retrospective of Remedios Varo's work and is limited to works presented in that exhibition so it is far from comprehensive That said the design of the book is beautiful the selection of her work is impressive and the brief biography and analysis of her art is a good introduction to this artist Pick this up for the paintings themselves and be transported

    Las reproducciones de los cuadros son algo peueñas pero Remedios Varo es gigante
