Object by Meret Oppenheim (Swiss, 1913-1985)
This Surrealist object was inspired by a conversation between Oppenheim  and artists Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar at a Paris cafe. Admiring  Oppenheim’s fur-covered bracelet, Picasso remarked that one could cover  anything with fur, to which she replied, “Even this cup and saucer.”  Soon after, when asked by André Breton, Surrealism’s leader, to  participate in the first Surrealist exhibition dedicated to objects,  Oppenheim bought a teacup, saucer, and spoon at a department store and  covered them with the fur of a Chinese gazelle. In so doing, she  transformed genteel items traditionally associated with feminine decorum  into sensuous, sexually punning tableware.
