Remedios Varo, Creation of Birds, 1957, Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City, Mexico

 

 

Maria de los Remedios Alicia Rodriga Varo and Uranga, better known as Remedios Varo (1908-1963), was born in Gerona at the beginning of the century, after beginning her studies at the San Fernando Academy, contracted, then moved to Paris. At the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, she positioned herself for the Republican side and ended up emigrating to Mexico, she did not know that at the time, but this would be her home. Here she dedicated herself to advertising illustration, but soon became known, and now everyone knows her for being one of the first women to popularize her work in Mexico.

His work is easily recognizable by this fantastic tint and symbolic transcendence. One of its marks is the tendency to mysticism. Together with Leonora Carrington she forged a friendship that transcended in time and for that reason now, they are associated so frequently. Remedios, marked his works with a careful scientific iconography and much of his work can now be admired in the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico. He has been a protagonist in many times, but this exhibition is outstanding among the others.
