Leonora Carrington: Surrealism, Alchemy and Art by Susan L. Aberth
Carrington burst onto the Surrealist scene as a 19-year-old debutante, escaping the demands of her wealthy English family by running away with her lover, Max Ernst. She was championed by Andre Breton, who responded Enthusiastically to her fantastical, dark and satirical writing style and her Interest in fairy tales and the occult. Her stories were included in Surrealist publications and her paintings in the Surrealists’ exhibitions.
