[EXQUISITE CADAVER]. Valentine HUGO, Nusch ELUARD, Paul ELUARD and André BRETON. Cadavre exquis. Winter 1931-1932.
Colored pencil and pastel drawing on black laid paper with date and names of participants on verso in Valentine Hugo's hand (318 x 239 mm).
Beautiful "cadavre exquis" with four hands, executed during the winter of 1931-1932 by Valentine Hugo, Nusch
Eluard, Paul Eluard and André Breton.
The names of the participants are indicated on the back in white pencil by Valentine Hugo who also dated it.
"In their pre-existing desire for character composition, the drawings obeying the Cadavre exquis technique have, by definition, the effect of bringing anthropomorphism to its height and of prodigiously accentuating the life of relationship that unites the external and internal worlds" (André Breton, Le Surréalisme et la Peinture).
