The most comprehensive and up-to-date survey available about women Surrealists features an outstanding array of artists from
the early twentieth century to modern times.

Surrealism, and in particular its women practitioners, has undergone a resurgence of interest in the past decade as evidenced by numerous exhibitions in the world’s leading museums. Now, 90 years after the birth of Surrealism, comes the most comprehensive study yet of the women who contributed so much to this fascinating movement. Angels of Anarchy reconsiders the art-historical tradition of women Surrealists. It draws on an international range of artists to investigate how their practices responded to, developed, enriched, and even subverted the conventions and traditions of art history. One hundred colour images by thirty artists are accompanied by essays that illuminate fascinating aspects of the Surrealist approach. By presenting these important artists side-by-side for the first time, Angels of Anarchy allows for an unprecedented appreciation of the variety and depth of these artists’ contributions to the field of Surrealism and art in general.
