Leonor Fini (1907-1996) is widely considered one of the most important women artists and personalities of the twentieth century. Her work came to prominence in the seminal 1936 Fantastic Art, Dada and Surrealism exhibition at New York’s MoMA. Her paintings presented a uniquely female approach to Surrealism.

Never joining the Surrealist movement, she was entirely on her own – self-taught, self-created, known for her fierce independence, provocative panache, and elegance. A prolific painter, she also worked extensively in book illustration, printmaking, writing, as well as creating designs for plays, ballets, operas, and film. This new book is the definitive catalogue raisonne of Leonor Fini’s more than 1,100 oil paintings.

Lavishly illustrated in colour throughout, it offers essays on the artist’s oeuvre by Fini-authorities Richard Overstreet and Neil Zukerman along with a concise updated biography by British art historian Peter Webb.
