Book of the Week #10

 

 

 

 

 

This week's book of the week is The Surreal Life of Leonora Carrington by Joanna Moorhead. This is a thrilling biography with a fantastic premise:

 

"In 2006 journalist Joanna Moorhead discovered that her father's cousin, Prim, who had disappeared many decades earlier, was now a famous artist in Mexico. Although rarely spoken of in her own family (regarded as a black sheep, a wild child; someone they were better off without) in the meantime Leonora Carrington had become a national treasure in Mexico, where she now lived, while her paintings are fetching ever-higher prices at auction today."

 

 

This book offers an exciting insight into the life of a free-spirited, unconventional and relatively unsung artist of the 20th century. We highly recommend it!
