Artist and Studio
Leonora Carrington and Max Ernst
Leonora met Max at a London party in 1937. The artists bonded and returned together to Paris, where Max promptly separated from his wife. The following year they settled in Saint Martin d’Ardèche in the south of France. The new couple collaborated and supported each other’s artistic development.
With the outbreak of World War II, Max was arrested by French authorities and then by the Nazis. He managed to flee to America however with the help of Peggy Guggenheim.  But Leonora, devastated by the events and paralyzed by anxiety and growing delusions suffered a breakdown.
The couple never reconnected.
