Surrealists in petticoats. Rita Kernn-Larsen as seen by Peggy
Written by Anna Trevisan   
7__mg_9201.jpgSurrealism is more than an upwards black moustache and liquefying watches. There is room for Rita Kernn-Larsen’s phantasmagoric art, too. The Danish artist studied at the Copenhagen Fine Arts Academy and in Paris, where she studied under Fernand Léger.

 

One of the few women to enjoy a reputation in the surrealist movement, she associates with fellow artists in London and Paris and, in the 1930s, she exhibits her art in the most important exhibitions with Picasso, Dalí, Miró. She meets Peggy Guggenheim in 1938, who sponsors her first solo exhibition in London at Guggenheim Jeune. Peggy Guggenheim Collection dedicates her today a retrospective in the newly-inaugurated Project Rooms.
