This pioneering book stands as the most comprehensive treatment of the lives, ideas and art works of the remarkable group of women who were an essential part of the Surrealist movement. Frida Kahlo, Meret Oppenheim and Dorothea Tanning, among many others, became an embodiment of their age as they struggled towards artistic maturity and their own 'liberation of the spirit' in the context of the Surrealist revolution. Their stories and their achievements are presented here against the background of the turbulent decades of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, and the war that forced Surrealism into exile in New York and Mexico.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Presents a wealth of imagery and information about artists who commanded respect from their male contemporaries...as such it will be of great value both in reassessing the history of Surrealism and in illuminating the persistent marginalization of women's art' - The Oxford Art Journal
'Professor Chadwick's book has been centrally important and has initiated a vital re-centring of the whole Surrealist enterprise' - Times Higher Education Supplement
'Admirable' - Burlington Magazine
