First overview of Carrington's work since her death in 2011 at the age of 94 Looks at the many influences on Carrington's many surrealistic lives. It explores the Celtic imagery that enchanted her as a child, and the Mexican myths, imagery and stories that informed the second half of her career. Metamorphosis and transformation is an ongoing theme in Carrington's world, populated with disconcerting hybrid creatures, elongated women and people metamorphosing into birds. This theme also emerges in her self-portraits, portraits of friends and family, and literary output, as per the included excerpts from her unpublished manuscripts. Indeed for Carrington, writing was as important as painting. New in Publisher Shrinkwrap. See also 1. Leyendas de la Novie del Viento; 2. La Casa Del Miedo. Memorias De Abajo; 3.
