Surrealism and the Occult - Nadia Choucha
This revised edition of Choucha's influential book is an introduction to the occult influences on the Surrealist movement. One of the most influential art movements of the twentieth century Surrrealism's wider ambit incuded artists such as Max Ernst, Leonora Carrington and Remedios Varo, who drew extensively on occult traditions: alchemy, shamanism and gnosticism. Choucha's book is an eye-opening read, which has inspired many in the twenty years it has been in print. It is an essential starting point for those wanting to understand the influence of occultism on this important movement.
