    One thought on “Women Artists and the Surrealist Movement”

    1. An interesting, informative book, but mostly remarkable for the paintings, many of which are hard to find reproduced anywhere else. Interesting to know just how much Surrealism was a man's game (hey, it was the 1920s - 40s, course it was). But with the guys' creepy preoccupation with child women and all, the mature female artists got marginalized. Well, ha ha guys, Frida Kahlo's more famous then all of you now (except maybe Dali). But many other remarkable painters like Kay Sage and Leonora Carr [...]

    2. Básico para mi investigación de final de grado. Una lectura muy recomendable para cualquier interesado en arte.

    3. I first read this very well researched and written book about 15 years ago and was amazed and delighted by how many women were involved in Surrealism, as well as ashamed at how few of them were known about, by me and almost everybody else. This was one of the reasons I chose to research and write about the subject myself, so this was the seminal study for me.Can't really say when I finished the book, it's a great research tool and I return to it regularly.

    4. This is a landmark study--certainly one of the best out there and a pioneering work when it first appeared. For a fuller description of the issue of women and Surrealism, I refer readers to my review of Penelope Rosemont's Surrealist Women: An International Anthology.

    5. This is an excellent book for anyone interested in the Surrealist movement. It is the part of history most forgotten, the womens role. A worthwhile read.

    6. i love this book and return to it often to find inspiration for writing and for painting is also just nice to look at
