Introducing Leonora Carrington

This evening introduces a female artist and novelist, contending that she is an unsung heroine of twentieth-century magic.

This evening introduces a woman whose surrealist art is in the Tate, who was involved in the Spanish Civil War and who is a novelist and short story writer. She is also an occultists of sorts, and we contend that Leonora Carrington is an unsung heroine of twentieth-century magic. Hers is a world of magic, myth, alchemy, goddesses, jackal-headed beings, magical horses, spells, goddesses and covens of crones. Tonight’s illustrated talk will show her paintings and her magic, with some short readings from her occult-oriented prose. The speaker, Christina Oakley-Harrington, is an historian of religious belief and culture. Her doctorate is from the University of London.
