British Surrealism Opened Up
Dr Jeffrey Sherwin’s new book, British Surrealism Opened Up is, in the words of the author, an ‘everyman guide’ to British Surrealism. The book is an easy-read history of the movement from its beginnings in Paris to its arrival in Britain, including biographies of the British Surrealist artists and others who have included surrealist imagery in their work, as well as over 300 colour images. It also features sections on surrealist techniques and artist groups, as well as a chronology written by art historian Michel Remy. Jeffrey Sherwin has included autobiographical anecdotes and photos of the artists he has met including Henry Moore, Damien Hirst, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, Sir Peter Blake, as well as key figures of British Surrealism such as Conroy Maddox, Toni del Renzio, Anthony Earnshaw, Desmond Morris and George Melly.
