Format: Paperback
Women Artists and the Surrealist Movement contains interesting and useful biographical information, color illustrations and some of the major female contributors to the surrealist movement including Frieda Kahlo, Leonora Carrington, and Leonor Fini. Chadwick provides the reader with useful biographical information that may have influenced the artists work. Women Artists contains an easy to use index , a list of the illustrations and their location in the book, and a brief biography of each author. This book is a wonderful reference for research or for personal interest.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Stuart Pearson on May 2, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
VERY well written book on the function of women artists during the surrealist movement - both as muse for the men and as artists in their own right. The unspoken "maleness' of surrealism is also one of the first movements that allowed (somewhat hesitantly) women to be members and equals. There are ALOT of paintings shown by the main women artists (Kahlo, Tanning, Sage, Carrington, Fini, Toyen) however almost ALL are in black and white and small. The women of surrealism seem in most cases to have a far deeper intention to use color in their work as a form of expressing emotion than the men in general, however this gets lost in B&W. It does make you crave books by the individual artists, tho, so that's not a bad thing. Definitely get this book, but be prepared for wanting more.

By Kim Roper on March 29, 2012
Format: Paperback
People seem to believe that surrealism was all Dali, Magritte, Breton an Co when some of the great contributions to the form came from women. This is an excellent addition to the oeuvre and well worth the read. For those interested in surrealism, another book I would recommend arises from Carlos Lozano's long and totally weird friendship with Salvador Dali Sex Surrealism Dali & Me

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent overview of the lives and careers of some key Surrealist women artists - and it was a wake-up call for me, when I realised that, despite several years of tertiay study in the field of Art History, the only artists I knew anything about was Frida Kahlo.
A good summary of some neglected figures in art.
