Hey can you tell me the name of the artist who made these?

Or this one

Can't read the signature on the pics. They're good though!

It would help if you added some context to the description, Verifex. Where did you come across these images, and what, if any, information accompanied them?

They were taken at Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City.

More info: Mexico Museum of Modern Art, Bosque de Chapultapec, Mexico City, 11560 Mexico

This painting is called something like "the therapist", or "the counselor" or something like that, I only wish I could remember more.

Nevermind, I found it by zooming into one of the photos, the little text on the side revealed the name of the painting (just barely) googled it, and found it was the painter named: Remedios Varo

Awesome, glad you found it! If you like stuff (my opinion), you might want to check out Yves Tanguy -- I like his stuff, also found it in a museum and could barely remember it enough to find more. I just kept thinking, "tan guy" (actually pronounced 'tan-g(hard)ee') with an image of George Hamilton in my head... *smile*
