Surrealism is a particularly complex international movement, embracing both the literary and the visual arts, while lacking any single visual or literary style, and this, together with its long existence, has served to generate a very substantial body of writings - poetry, novels, essays, theoretical writings, manifestoes and other documents - which might be considered as fundamental to any proper understanding of the movement. 'The sources of Surrealism' is a sourcebook documenting the origins and development of Surrealism internationally through a collection of 234 original documents. The texts have been selected from across the whole range of Surrealist writing, as well as including influential predecessors like Rimbaud and Lautréamont, and contemporaries such as Raymond Roussell and Alfred Jarry. Texts are published in English throughout, with new translations provided for previously untranslated material. The book addresses for the first time the neglected area of the relationship between Surrealism and popular culture, including Surrealism's engagement with cinema, and attempts to address the increased critical interest in what in the past were more neglected figures, such as Michel Leiris and Georges Bataille. Particular emphasis is given to the earlier documents and influences upon the Surrealist movement, as well as to the period of its internationalism during the 1930s, and the texts cover Surrealism in Britain and Belgium as well as France. This collection presents what was most vital about this complex and often contradictory movement.
Against these two approaches (an internationalism that remainders most of the
world, and a nativism that argues for national specificity based on cultural
heritage) I want to suggest a third approach. This would be to set British
surrealism within ...

A monograph on an important British surrealist, who exhibited with Dali, Ernst and Miro. Eileen Agar's career spanned over seventy years, during which time she continually experimented with a wide range of techniques and subject matter. She is often categorised as a Surrealist, and much to her surprise, she was among those British artists chosen to exhibit alongside Dali, Ernst and Miro in the International Surrealist Exhibition held in London in 1936. While her association with Surrealism greatly enhanced her reputation, she never saw her work simply in terms of that movement. She drew equally from Cubism and abstraction to form a uniquely individual style with which to express her surrealistic fantasies. 27 colour, 38 b/w images

The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art's collection of Dada and Surrealism is regarded as one of the best and most complete in the world: it features masterpieces by artists such as Max Ernst, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Paul Delvaux, Yves Tanguy, Alberto Giacometti and Marcel Duchamp. The collection is also rich in archival material, ranging from letters and manuscripts to artists' books featuring unique drawings and inscriptions. The collection is rich thanks to two major sources: Roland Penrose (1900-1984) and Gabrielle Keiller (1908-1995). A celebrated British artist, author and close confidant of Picasso, Penrose was also a collector, assembling one of the greatest collections of early twentieth-century cubist and surrealist art. Gabrielle Keiller was a collector and friend of Penrose, who had connections with Scotland. Part of Penrose's collection and Keiller's whole collection were acquired almost simultaneously by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in 1995. SELLING POINTS: This catalogue, the first of the Gallery's Dada and Surrealist holdings, reproduces and catalogues more than 100 of the best works 150 colour illustrations

The Handbook of Modern British Painting and Printmaking 1900-1990 has been designed for people who enjoy, study and buy British art. The only portable dictionary-style guide to the life and work of modern British painters and printmakers, the book provides information on some 2,000 artists, as well as entries on schools of art, on museums, galleries and collections, on societies and groups, and critics and patrons who have influenced the development of modern art in Britain. Artists are included if they (at one end of the timescale) had finished their training by 1900, and were truly beginning their professional career in the twentieth century, and (at the other end of the timescale) had established themselves professionally on the national scene by 1990. If the artist was foreign born, he or she is included if they resided in Britain, and exhibited or worked here long enough for their presence to be of significance for British art.
