In Montparnasse: The Emergence of Surrealism in Paris, from Duchamp to Dali

Sale price Price £10.99 Regular price Unit price  per 

This is the story of Surrealism. Beginning with Marcel Duchamp and the wonderfully eccentric and avant garde Dada movement, Sue Roe goes on to tell the story of the moving death of Modigliani, the birth of Surrealist photography with Man Ray and his muse Kiki de Montparnasse, the love triangle between writer Paul Eluard, his wife Gala and artist Max Ernst, and finally the arrival of Salvador Dali in Paris in 1929. 'In Montparnasse' describes the extraordinary, revolutionary work these artists undertook as much as the salons, cafe life friendships, rows and love affairs that were their background.
