The first overview in a decade of the dazzling Surrealist universe of Leonora Carrington-artist, author, occultist, feminist.
Divided into 10 sections, Revelation introduces Carrington's singular artistic universe, displaying an extensive array of her wide-ranging creations (including paintings, drawings and tapestries) and fusing a chronological narrative of her life with a study of the most prominent themes in her work-from her training and early influences in England and Florence to her contact with the Surrealists in Paris, through her time in Saint-Martin-d'Ardèche, her traumatic experiences in Spain, her immigration to New York and her new homeland in Mexico.
