Sirenas del Aire, ca. 1935–36

Lola Álvarez-Bravo :: Sirenas del Aire, ca. 1935–36, printed ca. 1958. Álvarez-Bravo offers a pairing of the modern and the classical world using the surrealist approach of juxtaposing improbable objects. Two mermaids, their backs to the viewer, float on an empty picture. These mermaids (or sirens) have chosen a more modern vehicle to send their messages, a typewriter. | src Surrealism and Women Artists
