Description

From the sensuality of Dali's Mae West Lips sofa to Schiaparelli's dramatic Tear dress, Surrealism produced some of the most extraordinary objects ever created. Now available in paperback, this book examines the movement's impact on the wider fields of design, photography and the decorative arts, and its sometimes uneasy relationship with the commercial world. Surreal Things features works from artists and designers such as Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Horst P. Horst, Alexander Calder, Max Ernst and Joan Miro and explores some of Surrealism's dominant themes. The range of objects spans painting, sculpture, works on paper, bookbinding, jewellery, ceramics, glass, textiles, furniture, fashion, film and photography.
