Description: (SURREALISM.) Carrington, Leonora. Una Vida Surrealista. 9 etchings and aquatints in sepia, each signed and marked p/a. 407x305 mm; 16x12 inches, on Fabriano sheets, with wide margins. Title sheet with text by Carrington, essay by Angélica Abelleyra, and plates loose as issued; lacks portfolio case. To be included in Leonora Carrington''s forthcoming catalogue raisonné of graphics and sculptures being prepared by Salomon Grimberg. [New York], 1995

Notes: artist''s proof copy from a complete edition of only 25. Carrington, who spurned commercial success, retreated to Mexico in 1943 and ensconced herself among the community of European émigrés, including fellow artists Remedios Varo, Kati Horna, film director Luis Buñuel, and photographer Emerico Weisz, whom she married. In her later years, having fully established herself independently from the European Surrealists, she produced some of her most exciting and personal works, including this portfolio which depicts her preferred themes of magical symbolism, animals, alchemy, and the occult.
