Photomontage by Dawn Ades( Book )

Manipulation of the photograph is as old as photography itself: it has been used in political propaganda, and has also embodied or enlivened satire, publicity and commercial art; it has created evocations of the "brave new world" of the future, and surrealist and fantastic visions

Dalí's optical illusions by Salvador Dalí( Book )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on a central but relatively unexamined aspect of the work of Salvador Dali: his fascination with optical effects and visual perception. The book examines Dali's use of various pictorial techniques, photography, and holograms to further his exploration of visual perception and the ways that optical illusion affects our sense of reality." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Wardsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh."--Jacket

Surrealism : desire unbound by Tate Modern London( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and Elamite and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The surrealist leader André Breton described desire as the "only master that man must recognize." One of the surrealism's defining themes, desire was expressed variously in Salvador Dalí's charged landscapes, Joan Miró's lyric abstractions, and Hans Bellmer's unsettling nudes. Influenced by Sigmund Freud, the surrealists saw sexual desire as a path to self-knowledge - "a theatre of provocations and prohibitions in which life's profound urges confront one another." Published to accompany a major transatlantic exhibition of international surrealism, this lavishly illustrated catalogue explores desire in surrealist art in both words and images. Key works by such artists as Marcel Duchamp, René Magritte, Max Ernst, Dalí, Giogio de Chirico, Alberto Giacometti, Bellmer, Meret Oppenheim and Claude Cahun are illustrated and discussed, as are surrealist films and photographs by Man Ray, Brassaï, and others. The volume also features some of the rare and beautiful books produced by the surrealists in their celebration of love, as well as a selection of fascinating manuscripts, letters, and documentary photographs that reveal the personal contexts of the group's exploration of desire. Essays by leading scholars show how the theme of desire was implicated in almost all aspects of surrealist activity - not only its art and writings, but also its political struggles and its ethical stances on issues involving individual liberty and the social control of sexuality. This attractive and provocative volume illustrates a vision of desire that embraces both sublime exaltation and dark carnality. It shows the unprecendented intensity with which the surrealists extolled love and the extent to which they depicted desire as implicated in every thought, action, event, and encounter. A major contribution to surrealist studies, this volume is edited by Jennifer Mundy and has contributions from Dawn Ades, Katherine Conley, Neil Cox, Carolyn J. Dean, Hal Foster, Vincent Gille, Jean-Michel Goutier, David Hopkins, Radovan Ivsic, Julia Kelly, Annie Le Brun, David Lomas, and Alyce Mahon. -- from dust jacket
Mirror images : women, surrealism, and self-representation by Miami Art Museum( Book )

15 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surrealisme wordt vaak aanzien als een misogyne kunststroming. De werken stellen de vrouw dikwijls voor als 'de ander', on(be)grijpbaar. Toch zijn er een aantal vrouwelijke artiesten binnen die stroming. In dit boek wordt gepoogd aan te tonen hoe die kunstenaressen binnen die vormentaal hun eigen uitdrukking gegeven hebben aan vrouwelijkheid, vrouwelijke subjectiviteit, het vrouwelijk lichaam. Bovendien wordt gesteld dat de antwoorden die toen gegeven werden, ook belangrijk geweest zijn voor de volgende generaties vrouwelijke kunstenaars
The 20th-century poster : design of the avant-garde by Dawn Ades( Book )

31 editions published in 1984 in 3 languages and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marcel Duchamp by Dawn Ades( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genius, anti-artist, charlatan, guru, impostor? Since 1914 Marcel Duchamp has been called all these. No artist of the twentieth century has aroused more passion and controversy, nor exerted a greater influence on art, whose very nature Duchamp challenged and redefined as concept rather than product by questioning its traditionally privileged optical nature. At the same time, he never ceased to be engaged, openly or secretly, in provocative activities and works which transformed artmaking procedures. Written with the enthusiastic support of Duchamp's widow, this is one of the most original books ever written on this enigmatic artist, and challenges received ideas, misunderstanding and misinformation."--Jacket
L'amour fou : photography & surrealism by Rosalind E Krauss( Book )

13 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has been written about Surrealist painting and sculpture, but most of the erotic, disorienting, and exquisite Surrealist photographs of Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Andre Breton, Brassai, Salvador Dali, Andre Kertesz, and Hans Bellmer have remained all but unknown--until now. Traditional criticism has viewed Surrealist photography as a pale imitation of authentic Surrealist work. The assumption has been that photography, a "realistic" medium, is fundamentally incompatible with a cause devoted to the wildly subjective, the world of dreams, and the unconscious. As a consequence, Surrealist photography, a major body of twentieth-century art, has remained largely unexplored.L' Amour fou is the first book to study the crucial role photography did in fact play in the Surrealist movement. It shows how photographers enlisted into the service of "subjective" Surrealism their medium's very claim to "objective" reality. Of greatest interest, of course, is the book's abundant reproductions of the fantastic and distorted photographic creations that must be acknowledged as an important part of the Surrealist oeuvre
Dalí by Salvador Dalí( Book )

30 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in 6 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surrealist art : the Lindy and Edwin Bergman collection at the Art Institute of Chicago by Dawn Ades( Book )

17 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the finest and most famous collections of Surrealist art ever assembled is that of Chicago philanthropists Lindy and Edwin Bergman. The core of this collection, now housed at The Art Institute of Chicago, comprises 116 works in a wide range of media, from drawings and collages to paintings and sculptures."--BOOK JACKET. "The thirty-three artists represented in the Bergman Collection and featured in this book constitute a veritable who's who of the Surrealist movement. These include Jean Arp, Andre Breton, Leonora Carrington, Joseph Cornell, Salvador Dali, Jean Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Wilfredo Lam, Rene Magritte, Joan Miro, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, and Yves Tanguy. One of the collection's highlights is a group of thirty-eight boxes and collages by Cornell, the largest and most representative public holding of his art in the world."--BOOK JACKET. "Dawn Ades, a noted critic and historian of the Surrealist movement, has written an absorbing account of the works in the Bergman Collection and has contributed as well an introductory essay on the history of the collection. All of the objects are reproduced in full color; each entry is accompanied by information on provenance, literature, and exhibition history, as well as by Ms. Ade's knowledgeable commentary. The resulting book provides both a comprehensive view of a distinguished Surrealist art collection and an interpretive history of this intriguing, popular, and influential art movement."--Jacket
In the mind's eye : Dada and surrealism by Terry Ann R Neff( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dada reader : a critical anthology( Book )

17 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The revolutionary Dada movement, though short-lived, produced a vast amount of creative work in both art and literature during the years that followed World War I. Rejecting all social and artistic conventions, Dadaists went to the extremes of provocative behavior, creating "anti-art" pieces that ridiculed and questioned the very nature of creative endeavor. To understand their movement's heady mix of anarchy and nihilism - combined with a lethal dash of humor - it's essential to engage with the artists' most important writings and manifestos. And that is is precisely where this reader comes in." "Bringing together key Dada texts, many of them translated into English for the first time, this volume immerses readers in some of the most famous (and infamous) periodicals of the time, from Hugo Ball's Cabaret Voltaire and Francis Picabia's 391 to Marcel Duchamp's The Blind Man and Kurt Schwitters's Merz. Published in Europe and the United States between 1916 and 1932, these journals constituted the movement's lifeblood, communicating the desires and aspirations of the artists involved. In addition to providing the first representative selection of these texts, The Dada Reader also includes excerpts from many lesser-known American and Eastern European journals."--BOOK JACKET

In wonderland : the surrealist adventures of women artists in Mexico and the United States by Ilene Susan Fort( Book )

16 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Filled with a wide array of illustrations, this book offers a fresh perspective on surrealism as it spotlights the important role that North American women artists played in the movement. The surrealist movement in art is most often identified with male artists, many of whom objectified women in their paintings, casting them as sexual or symbolic ideals. Conversely, the female artists of the movement delved primarily into their own subconscious and dreams. This volume features the work of 48 Mexican and U.S.-based women artists whose contributions to the surrealist movement span more than four decades and whose work was both influential and radical in its own right. Thematically arranged, it includes more than 250 full-color images along with several essays exploring the effects of geography and gender on the movement. This unique book illustrates surrealism as a gateway to self-discovery, especially in North America, where women artists were freed from oppressive European traditions and the vagaries of war. From 1931, the year of Lee Miller's first surreal photograph, to 1968, when Yayoi Kusama presented her landmark happening "Alice in Wonderland" in New York's Central Park, the artists and works depicted here are both significant and extraordinary in their explorations of personal and universal truths"--
Undercover surrealism : Georges Bataille and Documents by Dawn Ades( Book )

27 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Undercover Surrealism is the first major survey of DOCUMENTS, the radical surrealist magazine published in France in 1929 and 1930, and edited by the avant-garde philosopher and novelist Georges Bataille. DOCUMENTS combined an eclectic mixture of art, archaeology, ethnography and popular culture, drawing in many of the greatest writers, poets and artists of the time, including Carl Einstein, Robert Desnos, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro and Andre Masson. With essays by leading authorities on Bataille and surrealism, and new translations of original articles. Undercover surrealism reflects both the subversive energy and the violent confrontations of imagery and ideas found in DOCUMENTS. It offers fresh insight into the cultural and intellectual climate of Paris in the late 1920s."--BOOK JACKET
Dalí by Dawn Ades( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in Spanish and English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Salvador Dali is the central figure in surrealism and one of the most eccentric artists of the modern age. A brilliant painter and draughtsman, Dali described his style as 'paranoid-critical'. Sexual and religious content is mixed with highly subjective and personal sensations. Death, decay and destruction are repeated themes." "Dali's life was marred with an early identity crisis, which led to him living his life oscillating between exaggerated self-promotion and psychological self-destruction. Gala, his wife and muse, had to save him from many crises. Meanwhile, Dali invented himself as a commercial object."--Jacket
