Summary
  • "Fantasiosa y excéntrica en su infancia, desafiante en su adolescencia, Leonora Carrington vivió la más turbulenta historia de amor con el pintor Max Ernst. Con él se sumergió en el torbellino del surrealismo, y se codeó en París con Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Joan Miró, André Breton o Pablo Picaso; por Max enloqueció cuando fue enviado a un campo de concentración. A Leonora se la confinó en un manicomio de Santandar, del que escapó para conquistar Nueva York de la mano de Peggy Guggenheim. Se instaló en México casándose con el poeta y periodista Renado Leduc; aquí culimina una de las obras artísticas y literaria más singulares y geniales"--From publisher's description
  • Traces the life of Leonora Carrington, the surrealist painter and writer, from her childhood in a wealthy English family, through her time in Paris between the wars and her escape from a mental institution, to her later years in Mexico
