Out of This World: The Surreal Art of Leonora Carrington

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Amanda Hall. Artist Leonora Carrington (1917–2011) was born into a wealthy English family. She joined the surrealists in Paris, and, during WWII, fled to Mexico, where she spent the rest of her life. Markel distills Carrington's experiences into succinct prose full of vigor and imagery. Hall's dreamlike illustrations pay homage to Carrington's own art, with vivid colors, pulsating patterns, and swooping lines. Author and illustrator notes are appended. Bib.
