Lone Woman
1951 Oil


Diana Ferlini

Entitled Lone Woman, this 1951 oil on canvas scene is by Mid Century Surrealist, Diana Ferlini Duncan (1911-1983). Born in Switzerland of Italian parents she immigrated to the US as a child, later moving to Hollywood where she began a serious pursuit of painting as an adult. Like many of the female Surrealists post WWII, Ferlini’s themes include: a feminine perspective on the Nuclear Family; the isolation of the new American home; the objectification of the female body; and left-leaning points of view on war, immigration and social issues.
