Surrealism in Paris Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Surrealism rose from the ruins of interbellum Europe to become one of the most influential artistic and literary movements of the twentieth century. Under the leadership of Andre Breton, Surrealist artists undertook a passionate search for freedom in all of its forms, delving into the imagery and language of the subconscious through the revolutionary methods of automatism, radical juxtaposition and chance. Surrealism in Paris reproduces a spectacular selection of artworks from the Fondation Beyeler's exhibition of the same name. Featuring key paintings, sculptures and works on paper by Hans (Jean) Arp, Hans Bellmer, Salvador Dali, Giorgio di Chirico, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Rene Magritte, Man Ray, Andre Masson, Joan Miro, Meret Oppenheim, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso and Yves Tanguy, and essays by a host of renowned scholars, this substantial catalogue revisits a crucial moment in French cultural history.
