Read full description of the books:
An interesting, informative book, but mostly remarkable for the paintings, many of which are hard to find reproduced anywhere else. Interesting to know just how much Surrealism was a man's game (hey, it was the 1920s - 40s, course it was). But with the guys' creepy preoccupation with child women and all, the mature female artists got marginalized. Well, ha ha guys, Frida Kahlo's more famous then all of you now (except maybe Dali). But many other remarkable painters like Kay Sage and Leonora Carrington, are not known. This book is a treasure in itself. I'd never read it before, but it's always been a special book for me - I bought it at MOMA when I was 18 , with my friend Meagan.
