Isabelle Dervaux On American Surrealism
American Surrealism differed from the movement that originated in France in the 1920s as artists reinterpreted Dalí's dreamlike imagery in the context of the Great Depression and under the influence of the American realist tradition.
Isabelle Dervaux is the Acquavella Curator of Modern and Contemporary Drawings at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York. In 2005, she organized Surrealism USA, a major survey on Surrealism in the United States.
This Lecture was part of the Louis A. and Francis B. Wagner Lecture Series.
