Toyen, actually Marie Čermínová (* 21. September 1902 in Prague ; † 9. November 1980 in Paris) was a Czech surrealistische painter, draftswoman and a Grafikerin. It studied first in its hometown art, before it pulled it to Paris, where it followed the circle around André Breton. It created their most important works, which anticipate the postwar current Informel in some and with rather small formats of a large plasticity and witness to space feeling, in the time of 1928 to 1938. It is considered as the most important Czech painter 20. Century.
