André Breton, Paul Éluard & Suzanne Muzard: 33 Collages
André Breton, Paul Éluard & Suzanne Muzard: 33 Collages at Ubu Gallery in New York, NY. "...Never before exhibited in the United States, these collages were originally contained within a spiral-bound sketchbook and were part of Breton's estate, which was dispersed in 2003. Although individual authorship cannot be confirmed for each work, the set is a unique contribution to Surrealism. Figures are in transformative or ambiguous states; disembodied heads, hands and eyes float out from the frames; and symbols of magic and chance are repeated throughout. A prevalent juxtaposing of religious and war imagery emphasizes the wit and mockery typical of the Surrealists."
