Remedios Varo Woman Leaving the Psychoanalyst's Office

Oh! How I love this painting! Remedios Varo was a Spanish Surrealist painter who moved to Mexico and became one of the most important artists in the country, although still largely and undeservedly in the shadow of Frida Kahlo.

This is one of her best: Woman Leaving the Psychoanalyst’s Office. Varo explained that, as the woman leaves she drops the ghost of her father into the well. A layer of her veil falls away. She’s still carrying a basketload of old crap, but it’s one item lighter now.

If this image calls to you, there are many more to be found on Janushead.
