Wonderful painting by the surrealist artist Leonora Carrington. It is entitled Maja del Tarot and was created in 1965. Here is the right hand side of the painting which shows images of the major arcana on the dress of the female figure who is depicted like a Queen in a set of playing cards.
Leonora Carrington, How Doth the Little Crocodile…,1998.
Leonora Carrington - a great surrealist, who lived in Mexico, and with Remedios Varo, and Kati Horna were known as the Three Witches. They were all part of a surrealist enclave in Mexico, that drew artists and political leaders from Europe. La Tres Brujas were interested in spiritualism, mysticism, and art, and inspired each other, and are all largely ignored by the good ol' boy artworld.
