“The influence of Surrealism on fashion and its ancillary arts lasted decades longer than the movement itself. This catalog, accompanying a 1987 exhibition at Fashion Institute of Technology, explores the extravagances of visual language as social and political comment, a revolution in perception.”–The Library Journal.
“The love affair between fashion and Surrealism began in the Paris of the 1920s when Surrealist artists plundered fashion’s imagery for their art, raising fashion beyond the level of mere style to an important expression of culture. This text reveals the extravagent and ingenious creations resulting from this collaboration. It ranges from the shocking Surrealist dresses of Schiaparelli and Dali, and photographic experiments with Surrealist techniques by Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton and George Hoyningen-Huene to the work of younger fashion designers, including Olivier Guillemin and Vivienne Westwood, who have all brought Surrealist imagery into clothing and accessories.”
This bountiful, visually lavish volume, published to accompany a 1987 exhibition at Fashion Institute of Technology, features the garments, paintings, sculptures, illustrations, window displays, fashion advertisements, costume designs and photography of Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, Issey Miyake, Horst P.

Women Artists: 1550-1950
Ann Sutherland Harris, Linda Nochlin (Eds.)
This book represents a major event in the art world. It is based on the first international exhibition of art by women, assembled by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from dozens of private and public collections throughout the world, among them the Metropolitan, the Louvre, the Uffzi, the Victoria and Albert, and the Prado. It contains the work, chronologically arranged, of eighty-four women painters, from the Renaissance to the mid-twentieth century, from sixteenth-century portraiture to modern abstraction.
Included are works by artists as familiar as Kathe Kollwitz, Mary Cassatt, Marie Laurencin, Georgia O’Keeffe, Léonor Fini, and Sonia Delaunay. Here, as well, is the work of women who received much attention, even acclaim, in their own time but whose accomplishments art history has neglected and whose paintings are now largely inaccessible to the public — artists such as Anne Vallayer-Coster in the eighteenth century (who was praised for painting “like a clever man”), Judith Leyster (whose Jolly Toper was attributed until recently to Frans Hals), Vanessa Bell, the brilliantly talented sister of Virginia Woolf, and Anna Dorothea Lisiewska Therbusch (about whom her contemporary Diderot wrote: ‘‘It was not talent that she lacked in order to create a big sensation in this country..’.it was youth; it was beauty: it was modesty; it was coquetry; one must be ecstatic over the merits of our great male artists, take lessons from them, have good breasts and good buttocks, and surrender oneself to one’s teachers”). Individual commentaries consider the work of each artist in the context of her time, tell the story of her life, often quoting from letters, journals, and the memoirs of contemporaries, and discuss not only the techniques and the principles of her art but also the conditions and expectations that fostered or inhibited her development. Two brilliant critical essays encompassing all the periods represented are provided by the distinguished art historians Ann Sutherland Harris and Linda Hochlin.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles CA December 21, 1976-March 13, 1977. 1981 Edition.
* Condition: Average-Good (general age wear – light spine creasing and tanning/sun-spotting to pages, weakened bind) – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

Sade: Sex and Death
The Divine Marquis And The Surrealists
The Marquis de Sade (1740–1814), best known for his violent, erotic novels, such as 120 Days of Sodomand Justine, was also one of the key inspirational figures identified by André Breton in his Surrealist Manifestos. De Sade’s importance to the Surrealists and their close affiliates is reflected in the sheer volume of art and writing dedicated to, or inspired by, his life, philosophy, and writings. Sade documents this body of Surrealist work, including many key texts and bizarre and erotic images never before assembled in one volume.
Included in Sade are more than fifty rarely seen transgressive illustrations by some of the most famous names associated with Surrealism, including Dalí, Hans Bellmer, Magritte, André Masson, and Man Ray. The book also features analytical texts by writers of the period such as Bataille, Breton, Bunuel, Eluard, and Klossowski. Also included is the first-ever English translation of “The Divine Marquis” by Guillaume Apollinaire, which was the first modernist appraisal of Sade and remains one of the best concise biographies of its subject, and “Sade and the Roman Noir” by scholar Maurice Heine, in which Heine posits Sade as inventor of the gothic novel. Putting the works in context is an extensive history by editor Candice Black that details the relationship between the Surrealists and Sade.
