L'âge d'or by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

64 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luis Buũel's second film is a surreal attack on bourgeois ideals that incited a riot when first released and still retains its power to shock. Buũel began the film as a collaboration with Salvador Dalí, but after a few days working together the two had a falling out and Buũel made the film himself, incorporating many of Dalí's ideas. Its narrative follows two nameless characters, a man and a woman, through a series of scenes connected by dreamlike logic as they try, unsuccessfully, to make love. One memorable sequence finds the couple writhing around on a cliff when a mob of socialites comes upon them and pries them apart. Frustrated, the man sees a yelping poodle and kicks it into the air. "L'age d'or" is not only an attack on bourgeois life but also a doctrine that directs humanity to live as the surrealists believed they should: that is, by placing love before everything else in life, such as the church, status, and family. Funny, disturbing, and thoroughly bizarre, Buũel's film is a purposefully blasphemous and corrosive work that attacks social institutions with such vigor and imagination that one cannot help but be entertained

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

56 editions published between 1929 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 566 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An unpublished text by Max Ernst and an interview with Gerard Tempest, who was tutored by de Chirico in the late 1940s, shed new light on the artist and his working methods.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
