That is the coolest shit! When I was in graduate school I actually concentrated in Surrealism. I have such a love and appreciation for Surrealism! Way to go picking such a boss name for your cat!
Some amazing anon yesterday told me that they wanted to name their cat Claude which immediately made me think of this painting by Svetlana Petrova
(because Monet’s first name is Claude)
Beyond being a total babe, she worked with the Parisian Surrealists and earned their respect as a female artist, which was pretty unheard of
Political turmoil forced her to move to Mexico with fellow Surrealist, Leonora Carrington, where they where able to redefine Surrealism free from the misogynistic, limited views of their male counterparts
She also painted some of the most interesting works of the movement because she so frequently utilized animals in abstract, unexpected ways
Remedios Varo: the original cat lady and total BAMF
Cats have been a girls best friend since the Renaissance.
