Surreal Woman








Meret Openheim,  painter and sculptor born in Germany quickly became known as the perfect embodiment of the Surrealist woman, the femme-enfant, who through her youth, naivety and charm was believed to have more direct and spontaneous access to the realms of the dream and the unconscious.









At a Paris cafe, in a conversation between Meret Oppenheim, Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar admiring Oppenheim's fur-covered bracelet, Picasso remarked that one could cover anything with fur, to which she replied, "Even this cup and saucer." Soon after, when asked by André Breton, Surrealism's leader, to participate in the first Surrealist exhibition dedicated to objects, Oppenheim bought a teacup, saucer, and spoon covered with the fur of a Chinese gazelle. In so doing, she transformed genteel items into sensuous, sexually punning tableware.
