BOATLOAD OF MADMEN: Surrealism and the American Avant-Garde, 1920-1950

Regular price $ 24.95 $ 0.00

by Dickran Tashjian

The author presents a rich account of how Surrealism, initially a rarefied metaphysical European art movement, became an archetype of 20th century American aesthetics. Revealing a wide curiosity, Tashjian goes beyond art history, freely zigging and zagging between high and low culture in this lively probe of issues of anxiety and influence. Kirkus Reviews
