MAX WALTER SVANBERG/LA FEMME DU VIKING. 1955. HAND-CORRECTION BY ANDRE BRETON.

£175.00

Paris: A L’etoile Scellee, 1955
26 x 20.5cm. 4pp. The scarce catalogue for Svanberg’s exhibition of 27 paintings (all listed). Two b/w reproductions. The design of the catalogue includes a heart-shaped cut-out allowing one image to be seen through the cover – and as always from this gallery, the catalogue is a standout of 50s design. Throughout, there is a lengthy text by Breton which contains a mistake which has been hand-corrected by the surrealist leader although this is in truth rather minimal: merely correcting a tense. This brochure was obtained indirectly from Breton’s own collection. A very good+ example of this ephemeral piece although there is some unavoidable fading of the green paper on the back cover.
