Leonora Carrington Haunting Surreal Paintings

Leonora Carrington (6 April 1917 – 25 May 2011) was a British born Surrealist painter and writer who has been described, alongside people such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro, as one of the leading lights of the Surrealist movement. Born in Lancashire in 1917 to a strict Catholic family she first came into contact with surrealism through her lover, Surrealist painter Max Ernst, before moving to Mexico in 1942. The Hearing Trumpet, her most famous piece of writing, was first published in France in 1974.
