Reviews - What do customers think about The Magic of Remedios Varo?

Beautiful Retrospective  Apr 26, 2008
I saw Varo's art for the first time at the National Gallery for Women in the Arts. Instantly she became one of my favorite artists. Her imagery is definitely strange and dream-like, but it has its own sensibility. "Magic" is actually a good word for it, because alchemy and the supernatural are common themes of hers.

If you're not familiar with Remedios Varo but love the strange and unusual in art, I'd highly recommend this book. It's not the same as seeing the real thing (which blew my mind) but as far as I've seen, it's the next best thing.
awe-inducing, powerful surrealism.  Sep 1, 2007
remedios varo is a surrealist in the sense that she is utterly original in her definition of reality. i feel like she lies somewhere between m.c. escher and frida kahlo, somehow fusing his old-world, masculine attention to the making of fine art, and kahlo's guttural, organic approach to story-telling; really, though, to compare the work of remedios varo to that of others is a grave mistake - - she is entirely herself, her art is a world all it's own. this book presents her work in a fine way, some of the pieces are a little small on the page - - i believe her work has such fine detail, it must be seen very close to truly appreciate that aspect of it. but it has a good biography section on her, and the rest is divided into themes running through her work illustrated through the paintings they contain, which i found intriguing. a great book, i am proud to have it.
