wonderful women and art 26 Sep 2010
By cristinar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great reading, beautiful women. The book includes great images of the magical, whimsical art that is Carrington and Varo, as well as the truly surreal and great photography of Horna. My only wish would be that it were bigger.

Reproductions of art by surrealists at hand at last! 10 Dec 2012
By Beth Williamson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Surreal Friends has reproductions of work by artists I had never gotten to see before. I am particularly interested in
Leonora Carrington and Remedios Varo. The latter I have books for; the former I have been able to see only recently
