Masson, André. (1896–1987)

L'Oeil: Revue d'art - Signed Interview in 1955 Issue

4to.  48 pp.  15 May 1955 issue of L'Oeil: Revue d'art.  Masson was the subject of an interview entitled "Le Surréalisme et après" conducted by the magazine's cofounder, Georges Bernier, and has signed to page 12, beneath the title.  In fine condition.

L'Oeil was founded in 1955 by journalist Rosamond Bernier and her second husband, Georges Bernier.  The goal of the magazine, which remains in print today, was to celebrate contemporary art.

André Masson was an early Surrealist and devotee of Cubism.  An iconoclast whose abrupt stylistic transitions defy classification, he went on to inspire the New York Abstract Expressionists before taking up a late interest in impressionistic landscapes.  Along with Joan Miró, he explored automatic drawing, seeking to express the creative force of the unconscious. (19888)
