About this title


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 André 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 Dalí, Giorgio di Chirico, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, René Magritte, Man Ray, André Masson, Joan Miró, 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.


This book achieves a sliver of the Surrealists' aspirations--displaying the familiar in a new and revealing package. Plus, it looks great, and it's always important to give the eye what it wants. (Sarah E. Fensom Art & Antiques)
