Born in Argentina Leonor Fini (1908-1996) lived most of her adult life in France. There she came in contact with many creative artists and writers. Although Fini never considered herself a Surrealist she maintained close personal relationships with several members of the group. One can see how their ideology influenced her work but she remained firmly rooted in the tradition of Symbolism, Metaphysics and Italian and German Romanticism. Her works can be found in most important collections of modern art around the world.
