"Issued from one of the greatest mirages that has marked our life, ending in a disaster - the Spanish civil war - I was there to see Remedios again when Benjamin Péret returned from Barcelona, bringing him along. The very incarnation of feminity, here in a hieroglyph of games and flames in the eye of bird, is the woman whom I take to be (and against what hell anf high water) the woman of his life. Remedios's work was brought tofruition in Mexico, most of it after their separation, but Surrealism claims it entirely for its own." André Breton (La Brèche, n° 7, décembre 1964, s.p.).
