Magnifying Mirrors : Women, Surrealism, & Partnership


A critical examination of twelve famous Surrealist artist couples by Renée Riese Hubert. Artists include Sophie Tauber and Hans Arp, Valentine and Roland Penrose, Leonora Carrington and Max Ernst, Unice Zurn and Hans Bellmer, Kay Sage and Yves Tanguy, Lee Miller and Man Ray, Alice Rahon and Wolfgang Paalen, Remedios Varos and Benjamin Peret, Hannah Hoch and Raoul Hausmann, and Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. "Although notorious for their idiosyncrasies, the surrealists revived artistic collaboration as an honorable and productive practice. Most of the famous surrealists were men, yet almost all were involved with women artists who were much more than sources of romantic inspiration. Precious little attention has been given to this most intricate of partnerships. Magnifying Mirrors is the first study of the complex partnerships that stimulated and provoked these men and women." -- from interior flap. Illustrated in color and black-and-white.
