* Leonor Fini (1909-1996) Argentine
"Armine"
Signed in pencil and numbered 230/275, screenprint, together with seven further screenprints from "Sultanes et Magiciennes des Mille et Une Nuits", each signed in pencil and numbered from 230/275 with the embossed cat, 53cm by 73cm (seven encased in the original box, with the frontispiece and ten dividing pages, one framed)

Born in Buenos Aires to an Italian mother and Argentine father, Leonor Fini was taken to live in Trieste, Italy at a year old where she was raised in a Bohemian way by her mother. Expelled from every school, she educated herself and is reputed to have read the works of Freud before she was sixteen years old.

She moved to Milan and participated in her fist group exhibition in 1929 and then to Paris in 1931. When in Paris her vibrant personality and dress sense meant that she was quickly acquainted with the Surrealist set of Max Ernst, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Picasso, Salvador Dali and André Pieyre de Mandiargues amongst others.

Although she never considered herself a Surrealist, Fini participated in almost every major Surrealism exhibition. Along with Frida Kahlo and Leonora Carrington, she is regarded by some as one of the most important women artists of the mid twentieth century. She experimented with a number of disciplines including, painting, set designs and costumes for the Paris Opera and the Metropolitan Opera Association and a famous torso shaped perfume bottle for Schiaparelli's Shocking.

As a bisexual a predominant theme in her work is the complex relationship between the sexes. Her obituary in The London Times emphasised her physical beauty, her erotic art, and her legions of lovers, whose names "read like a roll call of the literary and artistic talents of that brilliant age."
