LEONORA CARRINGTON-BOOK JUST OUT|
If you are a Leonora Carrington fan and have been tantalized by the lack of a really substantial English-language book on her, your wait is over ! There is a new book by Susan Aberth just published-it's a hardback, the text looks good (I only received my copy today). . .and the reproductions, many of them in colour, are absolutely wonderful.
L.C. was born in 1917, was the lover of Max Ernst for a while in the late Thirties and wound up in Mexico c. 1942 where she was part of the vibrant art scene for decades, her closest friend and influence being the equallly wonderful artist Remedios Varo. Nowadays, L.C. lives in New York, is in her late Eighties, and is still creating.
I obtained my copy from Amazon.
