  • About This Book


Small, smart, essential ? an incisive overview of Surrealism, introducing the movement’s key artists and capturing its essential and enduring concepts.

Surrealism was launched as a literary and artistic movement by French poet Andre Breton in 1924, and by the time of his death in 1966 had become one of the most popular art movements of the 20th century. Its very name has entered everyday usage as a synonym for bizarre. Taking the reader on a narrative journey through the history of Surrealism, this book is a digestible introduction to the movement’s key figures, their works and where to find them. Complete with a glossary of key terms and chronology, this new addition to the Art Essentials series provides an indispensable resource for anyone interested in learning about this most influential of art phenomena.
