This is a contextualising introduction to Leonora Carrington that surveys the landscape of her legacies, critical responses and fandom in a range of artistic media. I begin with the metaphor of the pilgrimage as a way into the current challenges of Carrington studies, and review the existing historiography on Carrington, justifying my understanding of quotation, my position “against influence” and “for intellectualism,” and use of a feminist-surrealist revisionary methodology, with close reference to avant-garde theorist Susan Rubin Suleiman (1990) and mythographer Marina Warner (1989), as well as discussion of more recent revisionary scholarship by Natalya Lusty (2007) and Anna Watz (2016). The introduction also provides a chapter outline for what follows.
