British Surrealism | Author: David Boyd Haycock
Surrealism was one of the most influential avant-garde movements of the 20th century. 'Discovered' in 1920 by the French poet Andr? Breton, it emerged from the horrifying irrationality of the First World War, the revolutionary nonsense of Dadaist art and the penetrating theories of Freudian psychoanalysis.?
Produced in conjunction with Dulwich Picture Gallery's British Surrealism exhibition in 2020, this publication features works by Eileen Agar, Edward Burra, Cecil Collins, Paul Nash, Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland, Francis Bacon, Leonora Carrington, Lucian Freud and Paule V?zelay. Delving back to the artists and writers who were the 'Ancestors of Surrealism', the influence of Lewis Carroll, William Blake, Henry Fuseli and William Shakespeare is explored. This beautifully produced publication will surprise the reader with it's unique, imaginative take on what an exhibition catalogue can be, including interactive pages interspersed amongst essays by David Boyd Haycock, Kirstie Meehan and Sacha Llewellyn.?
