“Maruja Mallo: Paintings 1926-1952”
Wednesday September 26 2018 - Saturday November 17 2018
A contemporary of Salvador Dalì and Luis Buñuel, Maruja Mallo (1902–1995), was one of the lesser-known Surrealists who came out of Spain, though her work played a significant role within the Spanish avant-garde movement of the 1920s and ’30s. Dreamlike, and yet more rooted in everyday reality than Dalì’s fantastical compositions, Mallo’s worked ranged from figurative ensembles to portraits and still lives, all imbued with a mystical air. This rare showing of her work should go a long way towards creating a newfound interest in her under-appreciated career.
