Surrealist Gifts: From the Estate of Andre BretonApril 29, 2004-October 20, 2004
Location: Nathan Cummings Building for Modern and Contemporary Art
Artist: Man Ray, Mirabelle Dors, Gherasim Luca, Andre Breton, and others
Curator: Adina Kamian-Kazhdan
A selection of works from the latest donation by Arturo Schwarz, which further enhances the collection of Dada and Surrealist Art he gifted to the Israel Museum several years ago. Thanks to Schwarz's generosity, the Museum has become a leading international center for the study of these movements. The new gifts were purchased from the estate of Andre Breton, author of the Surrealist Manifesto, and include works in a variety of media by such artists as Man Ray, Mirabelle Dors, Gherasim Luca, and Breton himself.
