An eclectic selection centered around French, American and Mexican Surrealism circles with: journals and magazines, exhibition catalogs, artist-signed and decorated postcards, original drawings and vintage photographs. Highlights include works related to or by: André Breton, Joseph Cornell, Paul Strand, Ad Reinhardt, Wolfgang Paalen, Marcel Duchamp, Fernand Leger, Max Ernst, Jacques Prévert, René Crevel, Francis Picabia, Man Ray, Paul Éluard, Joan Miró and more. Of special note is a unique selection of material related to the Swiss-American, second-generation Surrealist painter Kurt Seligmann (1900–1962) and items from the library of Enrico Donati (1909–2008), an Italian-born American painter and sculptor, known for his works in Surrealism, Constructivism, and Abstract Expressionism. A high point of this selection is the sought-after, landmark exhibition catalog: Exposición Internacional del Surrealismo (The International Exhibition of Surrealism), organized by André Breton in 1940 at Galleria de arte Mexicano in Mexico City.
