Current Obsession - The Art of Leonora Carrington

I've just discovered the artist Leonora Carrington, a surrealist painter in the 1930's.  Her life was as amazing and interesting as her art.

I think it was an article in the Guardian I found. I had never heard of her either but I love the art!

I read the Guardian article (2 of them, actually). The book is not available at our library. I'm sad. I just don't purchase many books and can't justify the cost of this one.

It seems to be only available in the UK. My husband will be there in a couple of weeks and get it for me. I'll send it to you when I'm finished. I'll let you know!
