A list of works exhibited at the Daniel Cordier gallery in 1959. Yesterday, today; our guests; three-dimensional objects, paintings, collages, folk art, etc.,... The International Exhibition of Surrealism organised at Daniel Cordier gallery at the end of 1959, organised chronologically and not by theme, was structured in a much more rational way than previous exhibitions, even though André Breton, in the circular he sent to the invited artists, also insisted on the indispensable staging of an ensemble conceived according to the dynamics of the adopted subject of eroticism. The list of works includes a painting by Robert Rauschenberg, an artist whose work the Parisian public had never seen before. [Atelier André Breton website, 2005] Handwritten texts, 1959.
