leonora

the other day in the bookshop, someone was asking about artist leonora carrington and reminded me that i'd loved her artwork when i first saw it in an art history class. she was english-born, florence-educated, mexico-based. and she is one of the last living surrealists.







her paintings are ethereal and delicate. carrington executes her work elegantly, making potentially frightening images seem more beautiful than weird... turning ghost stories into fairy tales.

her work brings miró and chagall to mind, as well as illustrator k.y. craft.

pues, que tengais un buen día—!
