Allmer's book is based on an exhibit at England's Manchester Art Gallery in 2009 and 2010 that claims to be the first major international group exhibition in the UK and Europe of twentieth-century women Surrealist artists. It covers not only well-known Surrealist artists, such as Frida Kahlo and Leonora Carrington, but less famous ones, including Emmy Bridgwater and Valentine Penrose. It also includes some more recent women artists whose work is similar to that of the earlier women Surrealists, such as Francesca Woodman.
The essays examine selected women Surrealists' use of classic artistic themes such as homes and other interiors, still lifes, and animals. With the pleasant exception of the one by Mary Ann Caws, I found them so full of Crit-speak as to border on unreadable.Read more ›
