Description

Handwritten manuscripts by Pierre Brasseur for The Surrealist Revolution, undated.

Pierre Brasseur, once a member of the group before being dismissed, contributes to The Surrealist Revolution a text full of promise, beginning with a discussion of Picabia before transforming into a semi-oneiric narrative. [site Atelier André Breton, 2005]

Handwritten manuscript signed, undated.
- 6 pages in-8°, handwritten manuscript signed with ink by Pierre Brasseur:

“Picabia? – Don’t know him anymore. Mister Picabia, yes! – can I answer him – for such articles can only be from this man; to be uniform or to be trapped in form – you so stupidly surrender with the introduction of the postcard – “souvenir of his creation... Dada?” [Auction catalogue, 2003]
