Spanish writer, member of the Generation of ’27. She was born in Valladolid and she passed away in Madrid. Daughter of the teacher Rosa-Cruz Arimón, nephew-granddaughter of the writer José Zorrilla. In 1908 she moved to Madrid to the neighborhood Maravillas to live with her maternal grandmother. She studied sculpture at the School of Fine Arts of San Fernando (Madrid) and there she met the painter Timoteo Pérez Rubio, with whom she would get married later in 1921.
