Surreal Encounters: Collecting the Marvellous
Out of stock
Artworks, perhaps more than anything else that one can acquire, are objects of desire, and surrealist artworks even more so. This stunning book brings together over 160 of the finest surrealist artworks, sourced from four renowned private collections. Together, they offer a superb overview of surrealist art, complementing each other and allowing us to follow some of the artists' careers from beginning to end. By uniting these works, exciting new juxtapositions emerge along with a fuller and richer picture of the surrealist movement as a whole. Ten essays explore the different origins, historical contexts and creative urges behind these collections.
