Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Handsome and collectible, the books each contain reproductions in color and/or duotone, plus a critical introduction and a bibliography.

Paris in the early 1920s saw the growth of a new art form called surrealism. Both a formal movement and a spiritual orientation, surrealism embraced ethics and politics as well as the arts. Surrealists sought to create a medium that liberated the subconscious mind, and many artists and photographers captured this revolution through photographic images. This new survey includes works by Max Ernst, Dora Maar, Lee Miller, René Magritte, Meret Oppenheim, and more.

Synopsis:

The classic Photofile series brings together the best work of the world's greatest photographers in an attractive format and at a reasonable price.
