Leonor Fini (1907–1996) was a recognised artist and personality in Europe’s cultural life in the mid-twentieth century. Her work challenged conventional ideas through questioning the frontiers between female and male, myth and reality, the conscious and unconscious. Fini demonstratively followed her own path and her work is characterised by a radical, consequential and individual approach.

Leonor Finis’s many-sided oeuvre is now presented for the first time in the Nordic countries. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, book illustrations, objects, text and costume sketches for theatre and opera.

The exhibition is produced by Bildmuseet with the support of Umeå2014, a key stakeholder in the city’s European Capital of Culture year.
