Art Discovery of the Week - Leonora Carrington

Yesterday I came across the work of Leonora Carrington for the first time. She was a surrealist, the muse of Max Ernst, a painter and author.

She painted lots of creatures, which I'm sure were inspiration to the creators of the Studio Ghibli animated films.

Here are three of my faves - there is also a nice article about her in another blog here:
