Best known for her dazzling paintings and tales of black humor, Carrington is one of contemporary surrealism's outstanding spokespersons. Born and raised in England, she joined the international surrealist movement in 1937. Down Below recounts her adventures in Spain "on the other side of the mirror," after being pronounced incurably insane. This new edition includes the original map, and new collages, by Debra Taub, a young surrealist graphic artist, dancer, and writer who lives in Chicago.
