Marie Cerminova is the real name of Czech painter, draftsperson, surrealist and illustrator, Toyen. She worked closely with her friend surrealist poet and artist Jindrich Styrsky until he died in 21 March, 1942. One of theme in her paintings is the erotic motive. As she grew older she get more and more interested in Surrealism movement. I put below some great black and white Toyen paintings.
