[POSTER]. International Exhibition of Surrealism. Paris, H. Jourde imprimeur,
Galerie des Beaux-Arts, 1938.
Two-tone printed poster (54 x 37 cm) : framed.
Poster announcing the famous International Exhibition of Surrealism held from January 17 to February 24, 1938 at Georges Wildenstein's Galerie des Beaux-Arts.
"An art show in an insane asylum": the brutal formula of a journalist sums up the emotion aroused by the exhibition put on by André Breton and Paul Eluard, with the help of Marcel Duchamp as "generator-arbiter". Salvador Dalí and Max Ernst were the advisors, Man Ray the "Master of Lights" and Wolfgang Paalen was in charge of the "waters and brush".
The poster bears five stamps cancelled at the bottom right. The day of the beginning of the exhibition is printed on a glued paper strip. Two brown marks on the upper corners. Small tear without missing in the right margin.
