JEAN, Marcel. Histoire de la Peinture Surrealiste.

(Paris): Editions du Seuil, 1959. First edition. Small quarto. 382 pages. Fascinating, illustrated, history of one of the great art movements of the 20th Century, and the many artists who contributed great works of art to it. All the usual suspects are included, and the text is supplemented by 100’s of reproductions of paintings, drawings, sculptures, mixed media works, graphics, posters and more by the likes of Duchamp, Tanguy, Ernst, Picasso, Breton, Chirico, Jean Arp, Man Ray and many others. A very good copy in an unusal dustjacket that has die-cut doors that open and close.
