From Fauvism to Surrealism

by Helene Leroy (Contributor), Geaninne Gutiérrez-Guimarães (Contributor)

A primer on four key movements from the heyday of modernism.

This volume gathers a wide selection of masterpieces from Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism and the School of Paris. Fauvism followed in the footsteps of Impressionism and Pointillism, blurring forms in bright colors, and its representatives here include Vlaminck, Derain and Matisse. Cubism, which arose from Picasso and Braque's determination to represent reality from a multitude of angles, is represented by works by these artists together with those of Juan Gris, Natalia Goncharova, Delaunay and Léger. The School of Paris includes Russian artists such as Marc Chagall and Chaïm Soutine, Bulgarians such as Jules Pascin, Italians such as Modigliani and Gino Severini, Spaniards such as María Blanchard, Dutch artists such as Kees Van Dongen and Japanese artists such as Leonard Foujita. From the Surrealist period and the years that followed, works by Man Ray, Max Ernst, Francis Picabia, Wilfredo Lam, Claude Cahun, Vera Pagava and Léonor Fini are included.
