The Masters: Remedios Varo Uranga

Dreamy and strange paintings by Remedios Varos Uranga (1908-1963). Fantastical gadgets and surreal chracters are mixed with an undeniable sense of humor.

Paradise of Cats, 1956

Woman leaving the Psychoanalyst, 1960

Creation of the Birds, 1957

Exploration of the Source of the Orinoco River, 1959

1950s portrait of Remedios Varo


  1. I wandered on to your blog for the first time and wanted to tell you that I love the art you choose to post, 'Woman Leaving the Psychoanalyst' and 'Exploration of the Orinoco River' are fantastic.
    I'm with you on the book thing you posted earlier, I have a hard time parting with books too. I figure at worst they do double duty as extra insulation.

  2. Extra insulation! Ofcourse! What a great justification, I'll have to remember that one.

    Thank you for your sweet comment, blue-eyed crow. :)
