Surrealist GIFs of Leonora Carrington
SURREALIST GIFS MADE FROM THE DREAM-LIKE PAINTINGS OF MEXICAN ARTIST LEONORA CARRINGTON
Leonora Carrington was a prolific Mexican surrealist in the 1940s. As an artist, her output included paintings and novels, all of them strange and dream-like.
And now, in honor of her 101st anniversary at Casa del Tiempo in Mexico City, her son Mr. Pablo Weisz has commissioned these GIFs of her magical paintings.
Carrington's work was influenced by figures like Sigmund Freud and, of course, the surrealist movement blossoming at that time.
"I painted for myself..." she said of her work. "I never believed anyone would exhibit or buy my work."
But of course, there was an audience for her work and even after her death, her work is exhibited and celebrated all over the world.
