Book Review


Leonora never followed the road paved for her. When she was young, her family wanted her to become a proper young lady. But all Leonora wanted to do was paint! She followed her dreams to art school, to groups of surrealists in France, and finally to Mexico. Leonora defied social norms as she studied and worked with men, painted strong wonderful female characters in her art, and had her art featured in New York, Mexico, and eventually across the world. She lived an unconventional life and created surreal art full of imagination, color, vibrancy, and strong women like herself.
