Remedios Varo

The Spanish-born Mexican artist Remedios Varo is my current fascination, and I’m trying to see how I can make her the subject of a lesson. I learned about her from a reading the the textbook Temas, but I find the reading to be quite dense. I’m intrigued not only by her art, but also the fact that she was a female surrealist. When we talk about art in class, we talk mostly about men, so I am glad to have a woman to talk about. Here are the few resources I have so far; hopefully a lesson that I can post will spring from this.

  1. I haven’t had my students study surrealism in years. I would love to do so again with some of the female surrealists. Thank you for this.
