Editorial Reviews

Review

'Anyone who wants to get their bearings in Duchamp and Dali's worlds should read Matthew Gale's Dada & Surrealism. Gale provides an extremely clear, up-to-date and thorough account of all the movements' different strands around the world. One of the main pleasures of the book is the quantity and range of colour illustrations. Gale's book should become the standard general survey.' (Independent) 'Art & Ideas has broken new ground in making accessible authoritative views on periods, movements and concepts in art. As a series it represents a real advance in publishing.' (Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate London) 'The format is wonderful and offers what had long been missing in academic studies: usable manuals for specific themes or periods...I am definitely not alone in welcoming Art & Ideas as a precious set of teaching tools.' (Joachim Pissarro, Yale University)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While its 6" by 9" format necessarily limits the sizes of the illustrations, Gale's choices of which illustrations to include are excellent, ranging from the requisite Picabias, Ernsts, and Dalis to works by lesser-known (and sometimes non-European) artists like Remedios Varo. The author has thoroughly researched his subject, and the text is both authoritative and insightful.

Format: Paperback
Gale provides the better part of what is required to get a sense of the Dada movement. Other books on the subject provide a more concise and readable narrative of the subject, but Gale's book is full of illustrations that offer a good feel for the works created in the various Dada cities and periods. Not definitive, but close enough.

Format: Paperback
This book is incredible in its design and content. Th quality of the images and text is superb. It also bridges the history between Dada and surrealism presenting works of art in vivid color along the way. It serves as a resource of the two movements backgrounds and history as well as pleasing the eye with its many examples.
