Women Artists and the Surrealist Movement

Whitney Chadwick

“This pioneering book stands as the most comprehensive treatment of the lives, idea’s and art works of the remarkable group of women who were an essential part of the Surrealist movement. Frida Kahlo, Meret Oppenheim and Dorothea Tanning, among many others, became an embodiment of their age as they struggled towards artistic maturity and their own ‘liberation of the spirit’ in the context of the surrealist revolution. Their stories and their achievements are presented here against the background of the turbulent decades of the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s , and the war that forced Surrealism into exile in New York and Mexico.” – Blurb
