    First Impression. Octavo, [23cm/9inches], paperbound with pictorial covers, pp. 510, indexed . Leonora Carrington was a Mexican-born English budding Surrealist artists, when saw Max Ernst's work in the 1936 International Surrealist Exhibition in London, and was immediately attracted to the Surrealist artist before actually meeting him. She met Ernst at a party in London in 1937. The artists bonded and returned together to Paris, where Ernst promptly separated from his wife. In 1938 they left Paris and settled in Saint Martin d'Ardèche in the south of France. The new couple collaborated and supported each other's artistic development. It has been noted that these two artists collaborated together and created sculptures of guardian animals to decorate their home with in St. Martin d'Ardeche; Ernst created his birds and Carrington created a plaster horse head.[In 1939, Carrington painted Portrait of Max Ernst as a tribute to their relationship. Soon after the Nazi occupation of France, Ernst was arrested again, this time by the Gestapo. He managed to escape and flee to America with the help of Peggy Guggenheim, a sponsor of the arts.[13] After Ernst's arrest, a devastated Carrington fled to Spain. Paralyzing anxiety and growing delusions culminated in a final breakdown at the British Embassy in Madrid. Her parents intervened and had her institutionalized. She was given "convulsive therapy" with cardiazol, a powerful anxiogenic drug that was eventually banned by some authorities, for instance U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition to Cardiazol, she was also given Barbiturate Luminal.[14]After being released into the care of a nurse who took her to Lisbon, Carrington ran away and sought refuge in the Mexican Embassy. Meanwhile, Ernst had been extricated from Europe with the help of Peggy Guggenheim, whom he married in 1941. Ernst and Carrington had experienced so much misery that they were unable to reconnect. Educated by governesses, tutors and nuns, she was expelled from two schools, including New Hall School, Chelmsford,[7] for her rebellious behaviour until her family sent her to Florence where she attended Mrs. Penrose's Academy of Art. Her father was opposed to an artist's career for her, but her mother encouraged her. She returned to England and was presented at Court, but according to her, she brought a copy of Aldous Huxley's Eyeless in Gaza (1936) to read instead. In 1935, she attended the Chelsea School of Art in London for one year but thanks to her father's friend Serge Chermayeff, she was able to transfer to the Ozenfant Academy in London from 1935-1938.[8]She saw her first Surrealist painting in a Left Bank gallery in 1927 (when she was ten years old)[citation needed] and met many Surrealists, including Paul Éluard[citation needed]. She became familiar with Surrealism from a copy of Herbert Read's book 'Surrealism' (1936) that her mother gave her. [9] Leonora Carrington found little encouragement from her family to forge an artistic career.With the outbreak of World War II, Ernst was arrested by French authorities for being a "hostile alien." Thanks to the intercession of Paul Éluard, and other friends including the American journalist Varian Fry, he was discharged a few weeks later. In exceptionally good condition.
