Leonor Fini - Oil on stone
You once had a time, now that time is gone.
Portrait de Femme, 1963, Oil on stone, 1 3/4" x 1 3/8"
This French river stone is an extremely rare medium for Leonor Fini. It came from a party she hosted with figures such as Walt Disney and Salvador Dali in attendance. She handed out river rocks and drift wood for her guests to draw on. This is hers. I love thinking of all the creative energy this piece absorbed as it was being created.
Leonor Fini is one of the most important artists in the 20th Century. The originality of her art as well as her intelligence, famous wit, and charisma accorded her celebrity status in the global art world beginning in the late 1930's.
