This was a very unusual exhibition; very surreal, indeed. The exhibition held in the separate branch of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, dedicated to the ‘private collections’, was presenting the social art-books, so called ‘livre d`artiste’ created by carious surrealist masters, from Picasso and Dali, to Andre Masson and Max Ernst, , Yves Tanguy and Dorothea Tanning, Leonor Fini and Jean Arp, and many more less know, but no less interesting works. And even in case of the famous Dali and Picasso what was presented is far less known works, such as the above series of illustrations for the Alice in Wonderland made by Dali (I’ve never heard about it).
It was actually possible to take pictures at the exhibition (a rare case for this building), and so I took quite a few; the question now is how to find time to process and upload them here. One day, hopefully soon.
