Promotional brochure for the film of "7 Dreams Shaped After the Visions of 7 Contemporary Artists" -- Max Ernst, Fernand Leger, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Calder, and Hans Richter. Includes the cast list and photos. A bit tanned along the edges, else fine. From the library of Enrico Donati (1909-2008), an Italian-born American painter and sculptor, known for his works in Surrealism, Constructivism, and Abstract Expressionism. He attended the New School for Social Research, and in 1942 had his first one-man show at the New School’s gallery. His work impressed the art historian Lionello Venturi, who brought him into a circle of prominent European artists, many of them Surrealists, who had gathered in New York at the outset of the war – Andre Breton, Max Ernst, Salvador Dali, Yves Tanguy, Arshile Gorky, Marcel Duchamp, Giorgio de Chirico, Fernand Léger and the American sculptor Alexander Calder. Mr. Donati’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, as well as the Museum of Fine Art in Houston and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels.
