This title in the Modern Masters series focuses on the work of Joan Miro, one of the painters most often associated with surrealism. Miro studied art in his native Barcelona before joining the Paris art scene in the 1920s. Fantasy, dreams, and myths played an important role in Miro's early works, many of which are included in the more than 70 full-color reproductions of paintings, sculptures, and tapestries in this collection. This is a fine introduction to the monumental works of one of the foremost artists of the 20th century. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Unbroken Poetry II (Poesie Ininterrompue II), Vol. 2

From Booklist
The fine last book of the prolific Eluard, here in a bilingual edition, is a rapturous and expansive series of long poems that reflects on the importance of love in sustaining revolutionary efforts to transform society. Love, to Eluard, was a kind of revolution of the spirit, binding one soul to another through, rather than despite, the body. This is love poetry of the greatest passion and the greatest tenderness: "Step by step I recover strength / Find new reasons for loving / And the world from under its shell / Gives me its sap that runs / Into the long stream of our kisses." Gilbert Bowen's translations well capture the breathless yet utterly certain quality of Eluard's French. Jill Lewis' introduction begins in rather heavy-handed theory but finally provides sufficient formal and biographical information for even new...

The Automatic Message
Andre Breton
0947757996
May 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book collects together the two most vital "automatic" texts of Surrealism. Breton’s prefatory essay The Automatic Message relates this technique to the underlying concepts and aesthetic of the Surrealist movement. The Magnetic Fields (1919) was the first work of literary Surrealism and is thus one of the foundations of modern European thought and writing. This authorised translation is by the poet David Gascoyne, himself a member of the group and a friend of both authors. The Immaculate Conception (1930) traces the interior and exterior life of man from Conception and Intra-Uterine Life to Death and The Original Judgement. The central section is a celebrated series of "simulations" of various types of mental instability. Maurice Nadeau (in The History of Surrealism) described the book as "An astonishing...

Book Description

Paul Eluard was one of the most important of the early surrealists. Born in Paris in 1895, Eluard first became involved with the Dada movement, and after the war, disgusted by the commonly accepted laws of bourgeois morality, involved himself with surrealism. His fame as a poet began with Capitale de la Douleur (1926) and continued over the next 26 years with over 50 books. Une Lecon de Morale (A Moral Lesson) appeared in 1949, three years before his death.

About the Author
One of the most important 20th century French poets, first involved with Dadaism and, later, along with Andre Breton, a major figure of Surrealism.

Book Review
Henry Miller called Brassaï (born Gyula Halasz) "The Eye of Paris." As a photographer, journalist, and author of photographic monographs and literary criticism, he had an uncanny ability to capture the Paris art world of the mid-20th century. Conversations with Picasso, originally published in 1964, is a collection of Brassaï's memoirs, resurrected from scraps of paper he stored in a huge vase each night after his talks with the famous Spanish painter, whose work he photographed from 1932 to 1962. In keeping with the lively bohemian spirit that so characterized Pablo Picasso's milieu, Brassaï wrote these notes in a vivid, conversational style, and they are now vignettes, of a sort, from a theatrical time capsule. Presented alongside the actual photographs he took during his visits with Picasso, Brassaï's...

Francis Poulenc
Wilfrid Howard Mellers
019816338X
October 1995
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Once considered as little more than the froth in the wake of the First World War, a witty boy-hedonist who, in the giddy Twenties, tweaked the noses of moribund establishmentarians, Poulenc has in fact proved unexpectedly durable--more so than any of his colleagues among Les Six, including
those who developed more grandiose ambitions. Here is a survey of Poulenc's music, based on careful selection of his works, and written by an authoritative guide. After placing Poulenc in the context of French life and society after the First World War and considering him in relation to his masters
and mentors, especially Satie and Chabrier, Mellers turns to Poulenc's Diaghilev ballet, Les Biches, to important sequels to it, such as Concert champetre and Aubade, and to works of transition, such as the Concerto for two pianos...
