Originally published in 1928, this treatise by Breton traces the origins and foundations of artistic Surrealism through trenchant assessments of its precursors and practitioners, and a call for the plastic arts to "refer to a purely internal model." Also included are his essays and analysis of Picasso, Duchamp, Dalí, Ernst, Masson, Miró, and topics such as Gaulish art, outsider art, and the folk art of Haiti and Oceania.
