Renowned Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011), enjoyed a distinguished career as a painter, printmaker, sculptor, and writer. Beginning at the dawn of the international Surrealist movement in the 1930s, her career took her from London to Paris to Mexico City, where she resided for most of her life. She worked at Graphicstudio from 1995 to 1998, creating six intaglio prints in her dreamlike and fantastical style. She also worked on a project at the studio that combined her images with five pages of text from her son, poet Gabriel Weisz Carrington.
