Dora Maar, Henriette Theodora Markovitch de son vrai nom, est née à Paris en 1907 d'un père croate, architecte, et d'une mère catholique fervente. Après une enfance austère passée à Buenos Aires, elle retourne à vingt ans dans sa ville natale et s'y impose comme photographe surréaliste. Muse de Man Ray, compagne du cinéaste Louis Chavance puis de Georges Bataille, elle ne tarde pas à faire sien un cercle esthétique qui révolutionne le monde de l'art durant l'entre-deux-guerres. Intellectuelle torturée, artiste à la conscience politique extrême, elle deviendra « la femme qui pleure », amante de Picasso livrée aux exigences du génie que leur rupture rendra folle, cloîtrée dans un mysticisme solitaire jusqu'à sa mort, en 1997. Ses portraits peints par Picasso seront alors vendus aux enchères, et son héritage âprement disputé puisque Dora choisit de tout léguer à l'Eglise. De Cocteau à Lacan, c'est toute une époque que dépeint Alicia Dujovne-Ortiz. Au détour d'une enquête psychologique passionnante, elle fait défiler dans ces pages une pléiade d'artistes d'avant-garde et de grands esprits et dresse le portrait d'une femme-image toujours mystérieuse, à laquelle la critique contemporaine attribue enfin le rôle qui lui revient.

Surrealism is a survey of the twentieth century's longest lasting and, arguably, most influential art movement. Championed and held together by Andre Breton for over forty years, Surrealism was France's major avant-garde artistic tendency from 1924 onwards, rapidly spreading around the globe to become an international phenomenon. During World War II Surrealism's exiled artists and writers had a major impact on American art and were a primary influence for the Abstract Expressionist generation. The official surrealist movement continued to the end of Breton's life in 1966, and its legacy is still pervasive today, in contemporary art as well as in numerous quotations from surrealist imagery in cinema, advertising and the media. The Survey essay by Mary Ann Caws - a distinguished scholar, translator and associate of the Surrealists - describes in clear, perceptive and lively prose the essential characteristics that define Surrealism, as well as tracing a concise path through the chronology of this prolific and wide-ranging movement. The text also demonstrates how surrealist art and writing are interdependent. The Works section follows the movement from its beginnings in the 1920s up to the 1940s and 1950s. Its six sections trace the themes which predominated at different stages: Chance and Freedom - the earliest work, characterized by complete automatic spontaneity; Poetics of Vision - the strategies of surrealist image-making, reflecting the mind's inner visions; Elusive Objects - the fascination with objects of all kinds from which emerged artworks such as Meret Oppenheim's celebrated fur-lined cup and saucer; Desire - the investigation of desire, eroticism and 'mad love' which is central and unique to the movement; Delirium - Surrealism's high-risk engagement with extreme mental states and disturbing, uncanny visions; and, the Infinite Terrains of later Surrealism, ranging from Joseph Cornell's magical assemblages in box frames, like 'theatres of the mind', to the infinite fields and dynamic energy of late surrealist painting at the dawn of Abstract Expressionism.

The international publishing sensation is now available in the United States—two brilliant, controversial authors confront each other and their enemies in an unforgettable exchange of letters. In one corner, Bernard-Henri Lévy, creator of the classic Barbarism with a Human Face, dismissed by the media as a wealthy, self-promoting, arrogant do-gooder. In the other, Michel Houellebecq, bestselling author of The Elementary Particles, widely derided as a sex-obsessed racist and misogynist. What began as a secret correspondence between bitter enemies evolved into a remarkable joint personal meditation by France’s premier literary and political live wires. An instant international bestseller, Public Enemies has now been translated into English for all lovers of superb insights, scandalous opinions, and iconoclastic ideas. In wicked, wide-ranging, and freewheeling letters, the two self-described “whipping boys” debate whether they crave disgrace or secretly have an insane desire to please. Lévy extols heroism in the face of tyranny; Houellebecq sees himself as one who would “fight little and badly.” Lévy says “life does not ‘live’” unless he can write; Houellebecq bemoans work as leaving him in such “a state of nervous exhaustion that it takes several bottles of alcohol to get out.” There are also touching and intimate exchanges on the existence of God and about their own families. Dazzling, delightful, and provocative, Public Enemies is a death match between literary lions, remarkable men who find common ground, confident that, in the end (as Lévy puts it), “it is we who will come out on top.” From the Trade Paperback edition.

Picasso's unique non-western art collection, now largely the property of the Picasso family, is presented here for the first time. This book provides a full documentation of Picasso's African, Melanesian, Polynesian, and Indonesian works, as well as an ethnographical description of each object. The interpretation of the collection as a whole, its physiognomy and poetry, sheds new light on the fascination non-western art held for the twentieth century's most important artist. For the first time, all Africa-related activities in Picasso's life, including correspondence with friends, writers, and art dealers, are presented in a coherent timeline. "Picasso and the African Experience: A Chronology," simultaneously a reference for future interpretations on Picasso's oeuvre, documents the deep, personal involvement of the artist with African and Oceanic art and culture.
