About

Leonor Fini, "Magical Cat," pencil-signed and numbered (116/225) lithograph. This wonderful cat image has piercing orange eyes and a very intense gaze. Fini was born in 1908 in Buenos Aires, Argentina of mixed Italian and Slavic descent. As a young child she showed talent in drawing and painting. In 1933 she moved to Paris and her work revealed a gift of fantasy that was close to Surrealism. She worked in different mediums including paintings, posters and lithographs. Fini also designed fashion and sets for the Paris Opera and costumes for the Comedie Francaise. Throughout her career mythology, fairy tales and world literature were major sources of inspiration. She loved cats and both sphinx and cats were important themes in her art. Fini was adept in different artistic mediums including etching, lithography, drawing, watercolor and oil painting. She illustrated many works by the great authors and poets, including Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Baudelaire and Shakespeare. Outspoken and independent, she was close to the Surrealist movement and her friends included André Breton, Max Ernst and Salvador Dali. Her work is represented in museums throughout Europe and the United States. Unframed
