Surrealism is the first in an expanded range of Themes and Movements titles which look beyond the post-1945 period to survey all of the twentieth century’s major art movements. Mary Ann Caws is an internationally respected scholar of Surrealism who has translated many of its major texts and published extensively on the Surrealists’ art and writings.

Aside from academic studies and museum catalogues this is the first comprehensive, art book format survey on Surrealism to be published for a number of years. It also provides an overview of the essential links between the Surrealists’ famous artworks and their equally renowned writings.
