Description

Author(s): Roe, Sue

In this entertaining and informative biography, Sue Roe illustrates how surrealism emerged in Paris amidst an artistic ambience of lively experimentation. Beginning with Duchamp, Roe tells the story of the wonderfully eccentric and avant-garde Dada movement, the birth of Surrealist photography with Man Ray and his muse Kiki de Montparnasse, the love triangle between writer Paul luard, his wife Gala and the artist Max Ernst, until the arrival of Salvador Dali in 1929. In Montparnasse recounts the extraordinary, revolutionary work these artists undertook as much as the salons, cafe life, friendships, rows and love affairs that were their background.

About the author:

Sue Roe is the author of several books, including the bestselling crowd biographies In Montmartre and The Private Lives of the Impressionists, and a widely praised work on the artist Gwen John. She is a Royal Literary Fund Fellow. She lives in Brighton.
