Picasso Etching especially made for the book Dons des Feminines
Dons des feminines "Automatic" poem and collages by Valentina Penrose.
Woman of talent, beauty and personality, Valentina was one of the first women who joined the Surrealist movement; through her wide travels around the world she has built a full life, enhancing her magical imagery, eroticism, and passionate feminist nature. Her poems flow in a stream of musical rhythm, and her evocative images dragged in impossible dreams.
Valentina Penrose was a surreal soul who naturally embraced the Surrealist movement, she inspired Eluard to write the preface of this book with a deep admiration of her feminine phantasmagoria. Picasso influenced by Eluard was also inspired to make the beautiful etching that complete this edition: The Couple. It shows two women on a bed, locked in each other’s arms.
