Leonora Carrington -- The Movie -- The Surrealist -- The Writer
|The Giantess by Leonora Carrington|
Carrington painted and wrote in a way that seems unprecedented. She states that the only person in her family that painted was her mother who would decorate biscuit tins for jumble sales. A few of her paintings are in the art museum in Dublin and more at West Dean College in West Sussex, former home of Eduard James. James, Carrington's patron, advocated strongly for her work and she was part of a 1947 surrealist show in the Pierre Matisse Gallery, New York.
