This work by legendary surrealist artist Leonor Fini is froma series called, La Grande Parade des Chats. Consisting of  four lithographs in colours on Japan, each are signed in pencil. They are from an edition of 35 (artist's proofs aside from the edition of 230) and were published by  Editions d'Art Agori, Paris.

 

Argentinian born artist Leonor Fini (1907-1996) is known for her dreamlike scenes in which dominant women and passive men undercut traditional notions of sex and gender. Nude or heavily costumed, Fini’s characters embrace humor, eroticism, and mythological symbolism. This work signifies this style, with these two dream like figures painted like clouds. Fini was a  key member of the Surrealist movement, in 1937, she moved to Paris where she would bond with the surrealists André Breton, Max Ernst, Georges Bataille, Paul Eluard.  While her works embrace strangeness and the uncanny, Fini refused to label herself a Surrealist due to the group’s misogynist element. Today, her work sells for six figures on the secondary market and belongs to the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Tate Modern, and Centre Georges Pompidou, among other institutions.
