Item description for Meret Oppenheim: From Breakfast In Fur And Back Again by Thomas Levy, Belinda Grace Gardner & Belinda Grace Gardner...

One of the most uncommon women of the 20th century, Meret Oppenheim most famously created the legendary Le Dajeuner en Fourrure, her 1936 assemblage of a tea cup and a fur. But Oppenheim was not just a Surrealist mouthful--though she provided the movement with one of its most recognizable symbols. Like her counterparts Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, Andra Breton, and Man Ray, she used found materials freely in her artworks, often to the point of creating a critical alienation of the viewer from an otherwise familiar object. Her greater oeuvre has often been subsumed by the dominance of the ubiquitous fur cup, a situation which this publication aims to remedy, presenting a career-spanning selection of witty drawings, paintings, objects, collages, poems, and designs for "applied artworks"--fantastic clothes, jewelry, and furniture. Shortly before her death, Oppenheim and editor Thomas Levy developed the idea of realizing some of her applied artworks; those that were made to appear here through photo documentation. Also included are scholarly essays, an exhibition list, a bibliography, and a filmography.
