Leonora Carrington is a Dream Decoder

In 1947, British-born Leonora Carrington was the only female artist to participate in an international surrealist exhibition in New York City. Since then, she has remained one of the most influential painters of the surrealist movement, drawing inspiration from dreams and her unconscious, and toying with our perception of reality. This spring, the Tate Liverpool is honouring her career with a special retrospective.
