Surrealism was a revolution. Unlike such other modern movements as Cubism and geometrical abstraction, it was not based on purely artistic innovation; its aim was nothing less than the liberation, in art and life, of the resources of the subconscious mind. Sarane Alexandrian traces the development of surrealism from its origins in the Dada anti-art revolt of 1916-20 to the death of its guiding spirit, André Breton, in 1966, which marked the end of its existence as a f ormal entity. He discusses and illustrates an astonishing variety of surrealist artist, including not only such giants of the movement as Dalí, Miró, Duchamp, Tanguy and Magritte, but a host of other remarkable artists. The result is a thorough and sympathetic account of the one current within twentieth-century culture which devoted itself to the pursuit of a sense of magic.
