Leonora Carrington was British-born and of Mexican descent. Through her surrealist style she explored themes of femininity and her peculiar fondness for equines.
Her work is both imaginative and evocative, continuously asking us to acknowledge our long-held beliefs while simultaneously pushing us to look beyond them.

In1939 Leonora Carrington killed herself with a gun to the heart!)
