Surrealist artist Leonor Fini in her Paris studio in 1952.
Fini was one of the most photographed people of the 20th century. Queen of the Paris art world, she was constantly in the news - fêted for her paintings, illustrations, theatre designs and, above all, her flamboyant bohemian lifestyle. She produced the most outré art, liked to cross-dress and had a penchant for living in ménages à trois.

I miss my mom so desperately. You’d think 10 months would make a difference but it doesn’t. I’ll always miss her. She was my favorite person and the one person who really understood and knew me. Today I was cleaning my apartment and I found a bunch of letters she’d written me over the years. I can’t help but cry. Why’d she have to leave? A year later and my life is barely recognizable. I’m barely recognizable. Some of these things are good, it’s made me strong. I need no one now and I know myself. I proved my strength not only to her and those around me but to myself. But I miss her and I still cry every day, every single day. She was everything to me. Life can be very cruel.
