The Surreal Life of Leonora Carrington



PDF, ebook, epub (ePub, fb2, mobi)

Leonora Carrington, born 1917, was the last surviving member of the Surrealist movement of the 1930s. A prodigious painter and writer, she was caught up in some of the most exciting, and most terrible events of the twentieth century. Lover of Max Ernst, friend of Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Joan Miro, Lee Miller, Peggy Guggenheim and many more, she eventually fled war-torn Europe to become part of the art scene in New York; and from there journeyed to Mexico where she married a Hungarian photographer and became the mother of two sons, befriended Frida Kahlo and eventually became one of Mexico's best-known artists and its national treasure. But during Joanna Moorhead's childhood all she knew was that there had been a wild child cousin called Prim who had fled the Lancashire family.Joanna set off to Mexico City to find her. It was the start of a life-changing kinship: days of talking and reading, of drinking tea and tequila, of going for walks and to parties, eating take-away pizzas or in local restaurants as Leonora told Joanna the wild and amazing truth about a life that had taken her from the suffocating existence of a debutante in London via France with Ernst, to incarceration in an asylum and finally to become a celebrated recluse in Mexico City.This book is the story of Leonora Carrington's life, and of the friendship between two women. And it's about surrealism as Leonora lived it: a way of approaching the world and a way of working out, if not the answers, then at least some of the questions.
