"As Leonora Carrington's star continues to ascend, it is gratifying to see that her work holds up under all the scrutiny." ―Susan L. Aberth, Artforum
In recent years, the work of Surrealist painter and author Leonora Carrington has received much mainstream recognition, but―until now―there has been no authoritative overview of the artist and her art.
Divided into ten sections, Leonora Carrington: Revelation introduces her singular artistic universe, displaying an extensive array of her wide-ranging creations, from paintings and drawings to tapestries.
The reproductions are punctuated by archival materials, book excerpts, and documentary photographs, for Revelation fuses a chronological narrative of Carrington's life with a study of her work.
Leonora Carrington (1917–2011) was a British-born surrealist painter and novelist. After fleeing Europe during World War II, she lived most of her adult life in Mexico City, where she was one of the last surviving participants in the surrealist movement of the 1930s and a founding member of the women's liberation movement.
