Surreal Lovers: Eight Women Integral to the Life of Max Ernst

Author(s): Margaret Hooks

Culture & Ideas

Beginning in Cologne at the outbreak of war in 1914 and the eruption of Dada, it describes the birth and heyday of Surrealism in Paris in the 1920s and ends with its demise in New York in the 1940s. The years in between were a whirlwind that shredded the artists dreams and scattered them around the globe from Cologne, London and Paris, to Saigon, Marseille, Lisbon and New York.Their saga contains episodes of searing passion, madness and betrayal when they made great art and lost, found and abandoned one another in the process.
