DOUMATO, Lamia The Literature of Woman in Art The Oxford Art Journal April 1980 pp.74-77 An odd article, but one which touches on Surrealism and related issues. ECKER, Grisela (Editor) Feminist Aesthetics The Women's Press 1985 ISBN 07043 39641 Translated from German, another general text, useful for those interested in the women Surrealists. GASCOYNE, David A Short Survey of Surrealism Cass 1970 (1935 original) ISBN 07146 22621 A classic. The first English text on Surrealism, and one of the best summaries of the movement concerning its formative years. Gascoyne was one of the prime movers behind the 1936 London Surrealism show (the very one where Salvador Dalí nearly asphyxiated himself in a diving suit). GERMAIN, Edward B. (Editor) English and American Surrealist Poetry Penguin Books 1978 ISBN 014 042 221 8 Brilliant. All manner of things surrealist in here. Short on women writers (and by god, their stuff is Surreal!), but very good. A brave attempt to catalogue the activities of Surrealist writers (and artists who wrote). GRIMES, T / COLLINS, J / BADDERLEY, O Five Women Painters Lennard Publishing 1989 ISBN 185291 083 6 Good essay on Eileen Agar. GRIMLEY, Terry Seven Turn Surrealist in the City Kardomah The Birmingham Post, UK Arts and Entertainments Section 15 June 1991 Good article on the activities of the Surrealist artists based in Birmingham, UK during the 2nd World War. Maddox, Bridgwater, Melville, William Gear and others. KOCHNITZKY, Leon Shepherdess of the Sphinxes (on Leonor Fini) VIEW June 1943 WOW! View was one of the wierdest magazines around when the Surrealists decamped to the USA in WW2. This article is about the career and work of Fini, one of the most stunning of the Surrealists. Best line says that women's most amazing achievement take 9 months (well progressive, I think not!). LEEDS CITY ART GALLERIES Surrealism in Britain in the Thirties LCAG 1986 ISBN 0901981 281 The most substantial text on Surrealism in Britain with good essays on Surrealism in general, texts, histories, Britain's contribution etc. Not badly illustrated, though the pictures are mostly b&ws. The catalogue entries are somewhat bland and brief. LEWIS, Helena The Politics of Surrealism Paragon House Publishers NY, USA 1988 ISBN 091 3729 91 4 (pback) ISBN 091 3729 442 (Hard cover) Excellant on the political intrigues the Surrealist got themselves into. Remember this was the age of War as well as Surrealism. PASSERON, Rene The Concise Encyclopedia of Surrealism Omega Books 1988 (1984) ISBN 0907 853 28 5 Not bad. Translated from French. Good summary of major and minor charcters, styles and habits of Surrealism - but far too dismissive of the Women! RAY, Paul C The Surrealist Movement in England Cornell University press 1971 ISBN 08014 0621 8 A bit dry in parts, but a good summary of the literary basis of Surrealism in England. It reads better the second time around. READ. Herbert Surrealism Faber and Faber 1936 ISBN (1971 copy) 0571 09720 0 There at the start. produced circa the 1936 show. B&W illustrations and some good writings by Breton, and others. ROSEMONT, Franklin Andre Breton and the First Principles of Surrealism Pluto Press 1978 ISBN 0904 383 709 Great life and time of book. Very surreal in discussion. SULEIMAN, Susan Rubin Subversive Intent - Gender Politics and the Avant Garde Harvard University Press 1990 ISBN 0674 85383 0 Third best book on Women in Surrealism. Not all on S., but very good overall. Plenty of which to take issue! WARNER, Marina The Goddess Rising: Carrington and Women Art Forum Women's Art magazine March April 1992 No 45 pp.26-29 Good article by one of Britain's best art historians dealing with female imagery. Worth reading for the information on Lenora Carrington.
