The Surreal Body

£5.99

Available in Stock

Manipulated, fetishized and strangely transmogrified, the representation of the female body was a common thread in the work of the early Surrealists such as Salvador Dali and Man Ray, and swiftly spilled over into the world of fashion. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the V&A, this stylish and lavishly illustrated book shows how Surrealist ideas gained general currency, whether in the collections of Elsa Schiaparelli and Meret Oppenheim, or in advertising, film, photography and ballet.
