Surrealism and the Politics of Eros: 1938-1968

Author(s): Alyce Mahon

Art

A core text for the study of modern art and an intellectual tour de force, this radically new history of French Surrealism explodes the orthodox notion that Surrealism went into terminal decline after the 1930s. Illustrated throughout not only with artworks but with rare contemporary photographs and documents, this book will become a classic work on one of the most popular and controversial art movements of the 20th century.
