Summary
"One of the finest and most famous collections of Surrealist art ever assembled is that of Chicago philanthropists Lindy and Edwin Bergman. The core of this collection, now housed at The Art Institute of Chicago, comprises 116 works in a wide range of media, from drawings and collages to paintings and sculptures."--BOOK JACKET. "The thirty-three artists represented in the Bergman Collection and featured in this book constitute a veritable who's who of the Surrealist movement. These include Jean Arp, Andre Breton, Leonora Carrington, Joseph Cornell, Salvador Dali, Jean Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Wilfredo Lam, Rene Magritte, Joan Miro, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, and Yves Tanguy. One of the collection's highlights is a group of thirty-eight boxes and collages by Cornell, the largest and most representative public holding of his art in the world."--BOOK JACKET. "Dawn Ades, a noted critic and historian of the Surrealist movement, has written an absorbing account of the works in the Bergman Collection and has contributed as well an introductory essay on the history of the collection. All of the objects are reproduced in full color; each entry is accompanied by information on provenance, literature, and exhibition history, as well as by Ms. Ade's knowledgeable commentary. The resulting book provides both a comprehensive view of a distinguished Surrealist art collection and an interpretive history of this intriguing, popular, and influential art movement."--Jacket
