Remedios Varo Uranga (16 December 1908 – 8 October 1963) was a Spanish surrealist artist working in Spain, France, and Mexico. She was born María de los Remedios Alicia Rodriga Varo y Uranga in Anglès, a small town in the province of Girona (Catalonia), in northeast Spain, in 1908. Her mother named Varo in honor of the Virgen de los Remedios (the "Virgin of Remedies") after a recently deceased older sister.

Surrealist Remedios Varo’s paintings explore the female psyche and the domestic realm as sites of mystical revelation. Her female protagonists, depicted as heroines or mythical figures, navigate precisely rendered symbolic worlds populated by machines, magical creatures, and objects coming to life. Varo’s women appear isolated and trapped by their environments, androgynous figures with ambivalent facial expressions, in some cases bound to machines or contraptions. Often seen as an autobiographical artist, Varo uses these women as her stand-ins exploring the occult, the Kabala, and alchemy.

Varo and Carrington had previously met while living in Paris through Andre Breton. Varo’s partner for the last 15 years of her life, Walter Gruen, dedicated his life to cataloguing her work and ensuring her legacy

This would have been a great book in it's day, but now it's a little dated. Newer books have more of Varo's work shown in color and larger. There are a few obscure works here, but not enough to make me want this book in addition to the newer ones, so I returned it.

I've recently become a passionate fan of Remedios Varo - and THIS is the book to get if you want excellent, large, well colored and printed reproductions of her work. Other biographies etc. are great for text - this is the one to get a good, close, detailed view of the work.
It's so easy
This is a precious book.

This beautiful book is well worth the price. The color plates are large and true to color. Varo's paintings are on view at LACMA presently in a show called "Wonderland"--women surrealists.

As books of the paintings of Remedios Varo are difficult to find, may not well printed and only contain a portion of her work, this is the book to get if you are interested in her work. The fact that four editions have been published thus far is an encouraging sign that there seems to be some interest that this project is kept up to date. Do not let the price dissuade you. If you enjoy the work of Varo and if you want as much as possible of it in one source, this is the book to get. Well printed and presented this a beautiful book of her work.

I shelled out the big bucks for the pleasure of having Remedios Varo's wonderful works (a majority of them) in full color, one per page reproductions. What a delight!

There are various articles along with the introduction to ground the reader in the person and history of Ms Varo. There's also a wonderful section that lists various comments Varo made on particular paintings (which is a special treat to read as one flips back and forth, from her words to her painting). There is also a section with black and white smaller reproductions of sketches, studies, and lesser works. There's also a bibliography, periodical list, and list of exhibitions. The name of the paintings on the repros are in Spanish, but there is a list with the English translation in the back and an index, too. (The articles are in both Spanish and English.)

The only thing that would make this even better would be more of Varo's own words and all--every single one--of the works reproduced full page.

But this is definitely something worth having and enjoying for those who are either studying Varo's art or, like me, simply immensely treasure her work.

Such fun!
I love Remedios Varo, so this was a must in my library. It is beautifully done, great articles and comments.
