Art in Detail: The Surrealists takes a unique approach to illuminating, in close-up the styles and techniques of the leading figures of Surrealism. Using a series of die-cut windows, this book allows the reader to browse twenty significant masterpieces—including Picasso's Three Dancers, Dali's Persistence of Memory, and Miro's Potato—from a variety of angles and viewpoints.

  • Each image is first looked at in full alongside the artist's biography and place in the genre's timeline.
  • Carefully positioned and reversible die-cut windows allow each image to be viewed as a spotlit and magnified detail with authoritative text summarizing the characteristic technique, tone, and colors of the artist’s work.
  • An innovative and irresistible art giftbook that reveals and revitalizes twenty iconic Surrealist paintings.
