MAX ERNST: DADA AND THE DAWN OF SURREALISM. William A. Camfield et al. Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1993. Organized by Menil Collection, Houston. Published in association with Prestel-Verlag, Munich. 376 pp. with 337 ills. (145 col.) and 98 reference ills. 31 x 25 cm. LC 94-105124 ISBN 379131260X In English.
An in-depth exploration of Ernst's seminal contributions to the Dada movement and to the rise of Surrealism, this major catalogue highlights a diverse array of 216 paintings, collages, drawings and assemblages produced from 1911 to 1927 by the celebrated German-French artist (1891-1976), including early diagrammatic compositions based on machine imagery, enigmatic montages combining human and animal forms, and semi-abstract symbolic landscape paintings that reflect the thematic and stylistic concerns central to the artist's oeuvre. Fine reproductions of the featured works follow an extensive eight-part text that traces the evolution of Ernst's innovative imagery and techniques, reviewing in detail his involvement in Dada activities in Cologne and Paris and assessing his role in the formation of the Surrealist movement.
