Sphinx the Art and Life of Leonora Fini

Author(s): WEBB PETER


Talented, glamorous and ambitious, Leonor Fini (1907-1996) was one of the most influential female artists of the mid-20th century. This is the first comprehensive look at her life and art. Finis figures sphinxes, felines, nymphs, priestesses, nudes are bold proclamations of female sexuality that convey a powerful feminine subconscious. Also renowned for her theatrical set design, costumes and posters, the artist developed close relationships with other avant-garde Surrealists, including Andre Breton, Salvador Dali, Man Ray and Max Ernst, who became her lover. "Sphinx" is a fascinating portrait of a magnetic woman who lived her life with panache and elegance, deftly wrapping drama into her art.
