Leonora Carrington on making art, seeing art and being who you are. A fascinating glimpse into the mind of a complex artist of her time and beyond it. Apologies I didn’t find all the titles on these works but if the link is followed the information is easily discovered.

I painted for myself…I never believed anyone would exhibit or buy my work.” ~Leonora Carrington

Seraphine de Senlis, Visionary Artist

SERAPHINE
Seraphine Louis (1864-1942) or “Seraphine de Senlis” was an artist during a time when women, especially impoverished women, never became “serious” artists. She was compelled to create soaring, lush paintings, some over two meters high. She painted at night and in secret, making paint with diverse ingredients like flowers, blood and candle wax. Much about her process she never divulged. She was illiterate and, in her later years, committed to an insane asylum, where she died.
