This book is the biography of one of the most original and relevant figures in 20th-century Spanish Art.
Maruja Mallo was a close friend of Dalí, Federico García Lorca, Pablo Neruda, Ramón Gómez de la Serna, or Miguel Hernández, she was the only woman who was part of the Vallecas group. Her years of relationship with the writer Rafael Alberti left a strong mark on the work of both artists.
Energetic, brilliant, a free spirit, transgressive, with a great sense of humor, she was a woman who shocked, amazed, and scandalized the society of her time with her work and her political beliefs.
Essential reading to understand one of the most influential artists of surrealism.
