Angels of anarchy : women artists and surrealism by Patricia Allmer( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive and up-to-date survey available about women Surrealists features an outstanding array of artists from the early twentieth century to modern times. Surrealism, and in particular its women practitioners, has undergone a resurgence of interest in the past decade as evidenced by numerous exhibitions in the world's leading museums. Now, 90 years after the birth of Surrealism, comes the most comprehensive study yet of the women who contributed so much to this fascinating movement. Angels of Anarchy reconsiders the art-historical tradition of women Surrealists. It draws on an international range of artists to investigate how their practices responded to, developed, enriched, and even subverted the conventions and traditions of art history. One hundred colour images by thirty artists are accompanied by essays that illuminate fascinating aspects of the Surrealist approach. By presenting these important artists side-by-side for the first time, Angels of Anarchy allows for an unprecedented appreciation of the variety and depth of these artists' contributions to the field of Surrealism and art in general

Magritte A to Z by René Magritte( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Belgian painter, printmaker, sculptor, and filmmaker Rene; Magritte (1898-1967) was one of the leading figures in the Surrealist movement, producing some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. His trademark flat, inexpressive manner, combining apparently mundane, everyday scenes with elements of the fantastic or erotic, created a disturbing, dreamlike atmosphere that is all his own. He remained faithful to Surrealism throughout his career and developed a vocabulary of symbols--floating rocks, bowler-hatted men carrying umbrellas, incongruous nudes, concealed or shrouded faces--that is among the most recognizable in modern painting. This book explores the full scope of Magritte's work through the format of an A to Z, fully illustrated in color, with entries written by a range of international scholars. The entries under the letter A alone--Absence, Abstraction, Appropriation, Anonymity, Artifice, Automatism, and Automatic Writing--show how this approach reveals and explores the themes and motivations in this most enigmatic artist's work
Taking shots : the photography of William S. Burroughs by Patricia Allmer( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renowned and highly regarded for his experiments with literature, painting, film, and music, William S. Burroughs was also a prolific photographer. However, his photographic work, consisting of several thousand images, has so far received little critical attention or sustained public exposure. This book reproduces many unseen photographs and offers insights into his photographic practices"--Publisher's website
Collective inventions : surrealism in Belgium by Patricia Allmer( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller : photography, surrealism, and beyond by Patricia Allmer( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lee Miller: Photography, surrealism, and beyond" offers a major new critical discussion of the work of one of the most significant twentieth-century photographers. Applying art-theoretical analyses and insights afforded by previously unseen material in archives and collections, Patricia Allmer undertakes revisionary readings of many of Miller's works, including Portrait of Space, Severed Breast from Radical Mastectomy and the famous series of war photographs produced for Vogue. At the same time she sheds new light on Miller's relations with surrealist groups and American avant-gardes, on her experiences in Paris, Egypt and World War II Europe and on her critically neglected post-war activities. Above all, the book focuses critical attention on the works themselves. As a result it will be of great interest to students and scholars of twentieth-century photography, modernism and surrealism
Intersections : women artists/surrealism/modernism by Patricia Allmer( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Featuring new essays by established and emerging scholars, Intersections: Women artists/surrealism/modernism redefines conventional surrealist and modernist canons by focusing critical attention on women artists working in and with surrealism in the context of modernism. In doing so it redefines critical understanding of the complex relations between all three terms. The essays address work produced in a wide variety of international contexts and across several generations of surrealist production by women closely connected to the surrealist movement or more marginally influenced by it. Intersections explores work in a wide range of media, from painting and sculpture to film and fashion, by artists including Susan Hiller, Maya Deren, Birgit Jurgenssen, Aube Elleouet, Dorothea Tanning, Claude Cahun, Elsa Schiaparelli, Joyce Mansour, Leonor Fini, Mimi Parent, Lee Miller, Leonora Carrington, Ithell Colquhoun and Eileen Agar
This is Magritte by Patricia Allmer( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Belgian artist Rene Magritte's biography is a key element of his art. His life is infused with bizarre moments: a surreal journey oscillating between fact and fiction that he always conducted as the straight-faced bowler-hatted man. The events of Magritte's childhood played an important part in creating the surrealist, but it was his popular culture borrowings from crime fiction, advertising and postcards that has made his work instantly recognizable. The often unreliable nature of Magritte's accounts of his own life have transformed his public image into a kind of fictional character rather than a 'real person'. He would shape his own life story to be its own surreal work of art
