Article: Leonor Fini

Hey guys, I've decided to post some random news about random artists every once in awhile just to keep this site alive - freshness is at an all-time low it seems.

Anyways, this is Leonor Fini, I was reading an article about her extravagant and wild lifestyle and I found the controversy around her artwork as well as her own character very interesting.

"She produced the most outré art, liked to cross-dress and had a penchant for living in ménages à trois. And yet, despite once being infamous around the world, Leonor Fini is all but forgotten these days."

"You have probably never heard of Leonor Fini, even though she was one of the most photographed people of the 20th century. Queen of the Paris art world, she was constantly in the news - fêted for her paintings, illustrations, theatre designs and, above all, her flamboyant bohemian lifestyle."

"She knew how to attract attention and her antics never failed to make the headlines. She would dye her hair blue, orange, red or gold and attend private views and parties dressed as a man, or wearing nothing but white boots and a cape of white feathers." -

And man oh man, is she good! Can't believe I haven't heard of her before, but I'm glad I found out later then never!!
