"Reluctant muse and feminist champion... society heiress and rebel refugee... the last of the Surrealists: Leonora Carrington played many roles in her long and extraordinary life . . . she comes to rub shoulders (and more) with the likes of Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, and Salvador Dalí, after embarking on a complicated love affair with Max Ernst. This new work by the acclaimed partnership of Mary M. Talbot and Bryan Talbot celebrates the life and career of a truly remarkable woman - and artist."-- "Comics Beat" (4/4/2023 12:00:00 AM)
