Elegant Mystery has shared several images of Leonora Carrington’s surrealist artwork, and the short documentary film about this amazing woman’s life.
What a wonderful, inspired, and deeply moving story!
Leonora Carrington’s story gives one example of what happens when a gifted imagination and artistry that’s ahead of its time meets the straight edges and mores of Victorian and early Industrialist worldviews and stringent expectations.
Her story also explores themes of home and exile, feeling like one doesn’t ‘fit in’, and shows the power of finding one’s tribe and kindreds, love and friendship, and a community that embraces and celebrates unusual gifts … and unusual people.
