Author(s): Sue Roe

History & Theory

In Montparnasse is Sue Roe's lively account of the birth of Surrealism. Informative and entertaining, the book begins with Marcel Duchamp and the wonderfully eccentric and avant garde Dada movement, going on to tell the story of the moving death of Modigliani, the birth of Surrealist photography with Man Ray and his muse Kiki de Montparnasse, the love triangle between writer Paul Eluard, his wife Gala and artist Max Ernst, and finally the arrival of Salvador Dali in Paris in 1929. In Montparnassedescribes the extraordinary, revolutionary work these artists undertook as much as the salons, cafU life friendships, rows and love affairs that were their background.
