L'âge d'or by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

62 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally entitled The Frozen Waters of Egotistical Calculation, director Bunuel's L'Age D'or contains all the elements he would exploit in his lengthy career, corrupt clergymen, the church, police, and middle class society all fall under the assault of unrestrained lovers, animals and admirers of the Marquis de Sade. L'Age D'or was even too radical for Bunuel's collaborator Salvador Dali who quickly distanced himself from this cinematic provocation. In a program that accompanied the first screening of the film in France, the following explanation appeared: "The foundations are laid, conventions become dogma, policemen push people around just as they do in everyday life. And just as in everyday life accidents occur in bourgeois society while that society pays no attention whatsoever. But such incidents weaken an already rotting society that is already trying to prolong its existence through priests and policemen ... But it is love that brings about the transition from pessimism to action; love denounced in the bourgeois demonology as the root of all evil. For love demands the sacrifice of every other value; status, family, and honor." During one of the first screenings of the film, the theater was trashed by members of the Fascist League of Patriots. Paintings by Dali, Max Ernst and Man Ray were defaced and the cinema's screen splattered with purple ink. Further screenings of the film were then banned by the French authorities

The hundred headless woman = La femme 100 têtes by Max Ernst( Book )

55 editions published between 1929 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in Paris in 1929, this collage novel by avant-gardist Max Ernst constitutes a seminal 20th-century work of art. The artist's striking combinations of engravings from Victorian-era books and magazines, accompanied by enigmatic captions, offer a universe of mystery replete with all the possibilities of the bizarre dream world of the surreal. Images speak, language illustrates, and the reader's imagination provides the glue. 'Irrational, violent, tender, ironic, Max Ernst has invoked the whole kaleidoscope of human phenomena in these collages ... [turning them] into stunning proposals for adventure,' noted this volume's translator, Dorothea Tanning. The Hundred Headless Woman was the first of Ernst's collage novels, and its classic status ensures a place in modern art history classes. Every visit and re-visit to its pages tells a different story, an endlessly fascinating tale that runs and emotional gamut from keen humor to outright horror."--Page 4 of cover

An unpublished text by Max Ernst and an interview with Gerard Tempest, who was tutored by de Chirico in the late 1940s, shed new light on the artist and his working methods. Illustrated with some 180 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and documentary photographs, this book provides an unparalleled range of primary research materials and the best overall account of de Chirico's career."--Jacket

A little girl dreams of taking the veil = Rêve d'une petite fille qui voulut entrer au Carmel by Max Ernst( Book )

29 editions published between 1930 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the course of browsing an illustrated book of objects'umbrellas, watches, tools, clothes'artist Max Ernst was struck by the items' unusual juxtapositions. By manipulating the Victorian-era engravings into striking tableaux and adding brief captions, Ernst invented the collage novel and transformed banal advertising art into revealing dramas rooted in his dreams and secret desires. A Little Girl Dreams of Taking the Veil was originally published in 1930 as REve d'une petite fille qui voulut entrer au Carmel. Its hallucinatory visions center on the nightmares of a girl who loses her virginity on the day of her first communion and resolves to become a nun. Ernst, a pioneer of the Dada movement and Surrealistic art, blends humor and irony in his exploration of the nonrational but very real intersection of religious ecstasy and erotic desire. A century after its debut, this profoundly peculiar book retains its shock value as well as its imaginative power
