In wonderland : the surrealist adventures of women artists in Mexico and the United States by Ilene Susan Fort( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Filled with a wide array of illustrations, this book offers a fresh perspective on surrealism as it spotlights the important role that North American women artists played in the movement. The surrealist movement in art is most often identified with male artists, many of whom objectified women in their paintings, casting them as sexual or symbolic ideals. Conversely, the female artists of the movement delved primarily into their own subconscious and dreams. This volume features the work of 48 Mexican and U.S.-based women artists whose contributions to the surrealist movement span more than four decades and whose work was both influential and radical in its own right. Thematically arranged, it includes more than 250 full-color images along with several essays exploring the effects of geography and gender on the movement. This unique book illustrates surrealism as a gateway to self-discovery, especially in North America, where women artists were freed from oppressive European traditions and the vagaries of war. From 1931, the year of Lee Miller's first surreal photograph, to 1968, when Yayoi Kusama presented her landmark happening "Alice in Wonderland" in New York's Central Park, the artists and works depicted here are both significant and extraordinary in their explorations of personal and universal truths"--

Leonora Carrington by Leonora Carrington( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leonora Carrington (1917-2011) was born in Lancashire, England. In 1936, she saw Max Ernst's work at the International Surrealist Exhibition in London, and met the artist at a party the following year. They became a couple almost immediately; when the outbreak of the Second World War separated them, Carrington was devastated, and fled to Spain, then Lisbon, where she married Renato Leduc, a Mexican diplomat, and escaped to Mexico, where she eventually established herself as one of the country's most beloved artists. Leonora Carrington developed an iconography of myth, occultism and alchemy that has resonated strongly with younger artists over the past decade and a half. Incredibly gifted as a technician, Carrington was also possessed of a wild imagination, which she realized with great precision in her canvases. Her leading role as a Surrealist in Paris immediately prior to the war, and her life in Mexico City alongside fellow Surrealist expats Remedios Varo, Kati Horna and Edward James, have been the subject of increased interest and scholarly research. This is the first overview of her work to be published since her death in 2011 at the age of 94. Beautifully produced, with a faux-leather binding, a die-cut cover with foil stamping and 138 color plates (including two gatefolds), this volume looks at the many influences on Carrington's many lives. It explores the Celtic imagery that enchanted her as a child, and the Mexican myths, imagery and stories that informed the second half of her career. Metamorphosis and transformation is an ongoing theme in Carrington's hybrid world, populated with disconcerting hybrid creatures, elongated women and people metamorphosing into birds. This theme also emerges on a more intimate level in her self-portraits and portraits of friends and family. Writing was of equal importance as painting for Carrington, and this volume is supplemented with excerpts from unpublished manuscripts"--Publisher's website
Archivo María Izquierdo del Museo de Arte Moderno( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The personal archive of modernist painter María Izquierdo (b. Jalisco, Mexico 1902-1955), previously under the care of her daughter Aurora Posadas Izquierdo, was acquired by INBA in 2005. "For several weeks the curatorial team of the museum, revised and organized photographs, catalogs, letters, manuscripts, interviews and albums carefully collected since 1928 -first by María Izquierdo and later by her daughters- newspaper clips briefing her exhibitions and trips, as well as all the articles that reveal an unknown facet of Maria Izquierdo as art critic. The archive is of inestimable value in the documentation of the career of this Mexican artist that shined in the national and international scene." (Our translation)--Page [11]
