We came across this interesting blog post about Surrealism.
“There is this small thing in surrealism called the surrealist manifesto (okay by small, I mean that this manifesto basically brought surrealism into existence as its known today.) It was written by André Breton and it is pretty cool. I recommend you check it out if you like to delve deep into this kind of thing.”
More can be found on the blog:
A print is not a reproduction. A print, in whatever medium, is or should be made and conceived by the artist himself; he will have knowingly chosen his medium so as best to express his idea, and he will have supervised its execution at every stage. In certain cases others may have helped him in the technical execution and printing, but his signature on every proof is a witness to his approval of each final copy.”
– Julian Trevelyan; master print artist.
