ISBN: Reproduced in this book is a famous group photograph, taken in New York in , of a group of mostly European artists in "exile" in the U. They are arranged in three rows, in a quietly comical manner: Everyone in the back row faces left, those in the center face right with one exception and those in the front row face whatever direction they like. Of the 14 artists in the photograph, 11 are men, but, as if to anticipate recent concerns about gender inequality, each row contains one woman, including Peggy Guggenheim of Guggenheim Museum fame , Berenice Abbott the famous photographer and a largely obscure painter named Leonora Carrington.
She deemed the term a European invention and a misreading of her work. Kahlo was not alone in her frustrations. Born in to an overbearing, well-to-do family in Lancashire, England, Carrington entered Surrealist circles upon falling in love with the revered artist Max Ernst, who was 26 years her senior.

She lived most of her adult life in Mexico City and was one of the last surviving participants in the Surrealist movement of the s. Educated by governesses, tutors, and nuns, she was expelled from two schools, including New Hall School , Chelmsford ,  for her rebellious behaviour, until her family sent her to Florence , where she attended Mrs Penrose's Academy of Art. She also, briefly, attended St Mary's convent school in Ascot. She returned to England and was presented at Court , but according to her, she brought a copy of Aldous Huxley 's Eyeless in Gaza to read instead.

A nicely written biography of Carrington with a nice sampling of her work with extensive analyses of selected works. If you like surrealism, then this a great read. Beautiful and plentiful reproductions, with informative-enough accompanying text. The latter is without art, however, as unremarkable and shallow as the average undergrad's final paper in a course on
