Leonora Carrington, Letter to Dana Leonora was a contemporary & friend of one of my favorite artists of the period: Remedios Varo. If you are able to check her out, do yourself that favor. They used to create art together.
Leonora Carrington - a great surrealist, who lived in Mexico, and with Remedios Varo, and Kati Horna were known as the Three Witches. They were all part of a surrealist enclave in Mexico, that drew artists and political leaders from Europe.
