Vegetarian Vampires


Christies will be offering Remedios Varo’s “Vegetarian Vampires” (1962) in its May 27 evening sale of Latin American art. Varo (1908-1963) is one of the best and most famous of latin American Surrealist artists. Though her work might seem limited – she was working well past the heydays of European or north American Surrealism – there is still plenty that makes her work worthwhile.

Speaking as a vegetarian myself, I cannot help but be amused by the idea of vampires that eschew animal products. Being undead might not be so bad after all.
