Abstract:

Correspondence (ca. 6 lin. ft.) received by Poupard-Lieussou from artists, writers, publishers, critics and scholars mainly between 1956 and 1979. It often includes bio-bibliographic notes, drawings, photographs, printed materials and manuscripts (some of them unpublished or rare texts) given to Poupard by his correspondents or sometimes hand copied by himself. In the letters, they recount their experiences and memories of the early 20th-century avant-garde movements, particularly Dada and Surrealism. Poupard's diligent efforts to gather data for reconstructing the history of Dada movement all over Europe and in America established him as a virtual center of information exchange.

The bulk of the correspondence is from Georges Herbiet (who also used the pseudonym Christian), Raoul Hausmann and Pierre de Massot. Those manuscripts of essays and diaries provide intimate and detailed glimpses of their work and associations. The letters written from Toronto by Michel Sanouillet (president of the Association pour l'étude de Dada et du Surréalisme) discuss the goals, struggles and achievements of that organization in Europe and America over a span of twelve years, which include the turbulent 1960s. Within the collection, there are ca. 100 photographs of artwork and artists taken as early as 1914, but mainly dating from the 1960s and 1970s, in addition to the over 500 contact prints from the Dada 50th anniversary exhibition of 1966-67 in Paris and Zurich.
