$1,400.00 MXN


The British-born Mexican surrealist Leonora Carrington (1917-2011) created a spectacular Major Arcana Tarot deck some time during the 1950s, laying gold and silver leaf over brilliant colour. Exhibited for the first time during her centennial exhibition Leonora Carrington: Magical Tales in 2018, this extraordinary work was a revelation for the public, and inspired the publication of The Tarot of Leonora Carrington. This second, considerably expanded edition, encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive reception of Fulgur’s publication in 2020, explores further the central position that the Tarot held in Carrington’s work. The volume includes an introductory text by her son, Gabriel Weisz, who recalls his mother’s long involvement with the Tarot, followed by a revised and more extensive essay by scholar Susan Aberth and curator Tere Arcq, including detailed analysis of each card: their symbolism, their relationship to other works and their iconographic origins in ancient esoteric beliefs, including the Mesoamerican influences of her adopted country.
