Joanna Moorhead :
The Surreal Life of Leonora Carrington
Guardian journalist Joanna Moorhead tells the story of her lost relation, debutante Leonora Carrington OBE, who absconded to Mexico.
She became one of the last surviving participants in the Surrealist movement of the 1930’s, a founding member of the women’s liberation movement and national treasure in her adopted land.
Joanna set off to discover more after learning that her father’s cousin, rarely spoken of by her family, was now a famous artist having disappeared decades earlier.
Carrington died in 2011 but, in the years before her death, Joanna spoke with her many times about a life that saw her travel in the 1930s from London to France with her lover, prolific artist Max Ernst, spend time in an asylum, work with artists such as Dali in New York and end up as a recluse in Mexico City.
