Oppenheim, Meret (Swiss painter and sculptor, 1913-1985)

Note: First influenced by the art of Paul Klee, Oppenheim moved to Paris in 1932 and began a strong association with the Surrealists that lasted until 1937, and then sporadically until 1966. Known for her assemblage work utilizing everyday items that were modified and laced with erotic content, her most well-known work remained "Object" of 1936 - a cup, saucer and spoon lined with fur.
