Argentina 1908 - 1996
Leonor Fini (1908-1996), born in Argentina, was spirited away to Trieste by her Italian mother before she was a year old. For the first six years of her life she was disguised as a boy whenever she left her home to avoid kidnap attempts by her father. Raised in the "bohemian" salons of a radically changing Europe, her precociousness manifested in the creation of a persona of incredibly strong will and intense sensitivity. Fini always refused to accept being categorized. This is evident in her wide variations of media, style, and purpose. She has been called a painter, an illustrator, a designer, a feminist, a mystic, and a voluptuary. In face, she was all of these things, however, first and foremost, she was always LEONOR FINI.
