Remedios Varo Facts

Wiki info

Varo's father, Rodrigo Varo y Zajalvo (Cejalvo) , was a hydraulic engineer, and the family traveled between the Iberian Peninsula and into North Africa for her father's job. During these long trips, Varo's father would have her copy the technical drawings of his work with their straight lines, radii, and perspectives, which she reproduced faithfully. He encouraged independent thought and supplemented her education with science and adventure books, notably the novels of Alexandre Dumas, Jules Verne, and Edgar Allan Poe. As she grew older, he provided her with texts on mysticism and philosophy. Those first few years of her life left an impression on Varo that would later show up in motifs in her work such as machinery, furnishing and artifacts. Romanesque and Gothic architecture unique to Anglès also showed up in her later artistic production. Varo's mother, Ignacia Uranga Bergareche, was born to Basque parents in Argentina. She was a devout Catholic and commended herself to the patron saint of Anglès, the Virgin of Los Remedios, promising to name her first daughter after the saint.
