Leonora Carrington
Born April 6, 1917, in Clayton Green, Lancashire, England. Her Irish mother was the daughter of a country doctor; her English father an industrialist. She first discovered Max Ernst in an illustration in a book by Herbert Read. When she met the older artist in 1937, she decided to live with him.
