Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Leonor Fini was born in 1907 in Buenos Aires, Argentina of mixed Italian and Slavic descent.  She had no formal training in art but like most children, she drew and painted.  As a teenager she adorned her efforts with things like crushed eggshell, beads, etc.  By the time she was seventeen she was making portraits in oils of well-known people in Triest, which led to an invitation to move to Milan and paint the whole family of a government official.  In 1933 she moved to Paris (showing 500 of 1761 characters).
