Wadsworth Atheneum

FAREWELL TO THE MUSE

Whitney Chadwick draws on personal correspondence between women, including the extraordinary letters between Leonora Carrington and Leonor Fini during the months following the arrest and imprisonment of Carrington’s lover Max Ernst and the letter Frida Kahlo shared with her friend and lover Jacqueline Lamba years after it was written in the late 1930s.

This history brings a new perspective to the political context of Surrealism as well as fresh insights on the vital importance of female friendship to its progress.
