Forbidden Games: Surrealist and Modernist Photography : The David Raymond Collection in the Cleveland Museum of Art

Regular price £24.95

Forbidden Games is the first publication of the outstanding Surrealist photography collection of David Raymond  that was recently acquired by the Cleveland Museum of Art. Raymond's collection is distinctive in its breadth and quality and presents 178 vintage prints from the 1920s through the 1940s by artists from 14 countries. Works by notable artists including Brassai, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Dora Maar, and Man Ray are joined by rare examples by equally provocative but less well-known photographers.

Essays by scholars Tom E. Hinson, Ian Walker, and Lisa Kurzner provide analysis and context, exploring the philosophy behind Raymond's selections as well as the history, techniques, and symbolism of the photographs.
