Overview

A Guggenheim Museum Publication Over the course of almost five decades, famed magazine publisher Daniel Filipacchi and record producer Nesuhi Ertegun assembled the most important grouping of Surrealist art in private hands. This extraordinary two-volume set, accompanying the only public exhibition of these collections, captures the full range, paradoxical nature, and fascinating aspects of Surrealism. Featuring works by leading figures of the movement such as Giorgio de Chirico, Joseph Cornell, Salvador Dal, Max Ernst, Ren Magritte, Man Ray, and Yves Tanguy, these volumes are comprised almost entirely of full-page, full-color reproductions. Major paintings, sculpture, photographs, works on paper, rare books, and off-the-cuff ephemera appear alongside complementary texts, creating a complete guide to one of the most intriguing movements in art history. Two volumes, slipcased, 980 illustrations, 930 in full color, 10 x 12", 2-volume slip case Daniel Filipacchi, the publisher, is an art collector who divides his time between New York and Paris.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This hefty two-volume set presents what is probably the definitive artistic movement of the century. The Surrealists found a way to "put Freud on canvas," as Sanford Schwartz claimed, laying the basic foundation for much of contemporary art, pop culture, and advertising imagery. Ertegun and Filipacchi, two media moguls who collected Surrealist art, have provided a visual feast for this companion to this year's Guggenheim exhibit. A whopping 980 illustrations are presented, running the gamut from drawings, collage, and photography to uniquely Surrealist works. Because these works are from two private collections, omissions based on personal taste are evident and to be expected. What isn't expected, however, is the lack of supportive text. Most chapters have an introduction of only two pages, and most biographies are reduced to a paragraph. This limits the book's use and recommends it only to art history and specialty libraries.--Nadine Dalton Speidel, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, OH Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
