The history of surrealism by Maurice Nadeau( Book )

239 editions published between 1924 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 3,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I believe," Andre Breton said, "in the future resolution of the states of dream and reality -- in appearance so contradictory -- in a sort of absolute reality, or surrealite." The Surrealist movement, born in the 1920s out of the ferment of Dada, committed to revolution against bourgeois rationalism, and inspired by Freudian exploration of the unconscious, has reverberated more widely and deeply than perhaps any other art movement in our century. Its automatism, biomorphic shapes, visionary mode, and manipulation of found objects mark the work of artists as different as Ernst, Miro, Magritte, and Dali. Maurice Nadeau's History of Surrealism, first published in French in 1944 and in English in 1965, has become a classic. It is both lucid and authoritative -- by far the best overall account of this complex movement. - Back cover
