The World of Dreams in the Work of Leonora Carrington, Leonor Fini, Dorothea Tanning, and Remedios Varo

For the Surrealists, dreams are both expressions of desire and the place where our spirits achieve the highest degree of freedom. André Breton celebrated the imaginative power of dreams and described women as beacons of chthonic conscience. Female Surrealist artists overturned this male-centered interpretation, which saw them cast as the object of dreams and desire, by revealing the dreamworld’s complex secret and symbolic nature.
