The paintings of Remedios Varos (1908-1963), reflect the physical and psychological journeys of her tumultuous life. Varo found escape from her strict Spanish family, and the rigors of academic art in Barcelona's bohemian avant-garde. After fleeing the Spanish Revolution, she entered the inner circle of the Surrealists in Paris, then was forced to flee again by the Nazis, eventually finding passage to Mexico where she remained in Mexico City until her death.
