SURREALISM IN EGYPT: MODERNISM AND THE ART AND LIBERTY GROUP. Sam Bardaouil. I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd, London, 2017. 384 pp. with 81 ills. (38 col.). 25 x 19 cm. ISBN 9781784536510 In English.
Publisher's description: The Art and Liberty Group (Art et Liberte -- jama'at al-fann wa al-hurriyyah) was a predominantly Surrealist collective comprising, at its core, a number of artists and writers living and working in Cairo mostly from the late 1930s until the late 1940s. Shedding new light on this fascinating manifestation of Surrealism in Egypt, this book includes a select anthology of literary works by various Art et Liberte members, transcriptions of rare primary documents, and a comprehensive visual inventory of artworks most of which have never been published before. Given its breadth of scope, this monograph will be the first exhaustive academic work of its kind on the art, as well as the literature, of Art et Liberte.
