Surrealism’s biggest names: Breton writing on Magritte
Description                           Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500          

French writer and poet (1896–1966) best known as the founder of Surrealism. Page from a manuscript draft of notes in French, written by Breton and later significantly augmented by him in blue ballpoint, unsigned, one page, 8.25 x 10.5. Headed “Rene Magritte,” the notes discuss several of the artist’s paintings, the philosophical concepts behind his art, Magritte in America, and the shift of his work from a literal to figurative sense. In fine condition. Despite their volatile and often contentious relationship, Breton and Magritte remained in contact throughout their careers; Breton often returned to the topic of Magritte’s work, over the years vacillating on its Surrealist merits. An excellent artistic association between two of the best-known figures of the movement, especially desirable for the insight it offers into Breton’s working process of review and revision. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
