Published in conjunction with a 2001 exhibition of masterworks by women surrealists held at Weinstein Gallery in San Francisco, California. From Chadwick's Foreword: "...[I]f the contradictions between surrealism's liberationist goals and its reiteration of patriarchal ideology in the area of sexual politics - whether consciously or unconsciously enacted - remain problematic for many of us, Surrealism's significance for women artists since the 1930s seems to me undeniable today." From the private collection of art historian, author, professor, and lecturer on women artists and surrealism, Whitney Chadwick.
