From its beginnings in the 1920s, André Masson (1896-1987) was a key figure in the Surrealist art movement. He was a pioneer in the techniques of automatic drawing and biomorphic abstraction. Living in Paris in the 1920s, he collaborated with Surrealist poets and theorists, including André Breton, in their quest to subvert reason and to investigate the workings of the human subconscious. He also contributed illustrations to many important works of Surrealist literature and exhibited in the Galerie Simon, a gathering place for the Parisian avant-garde, which included Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein. His fascination with metamorphosis in all its forms not only informed Surrealist thought, but also provided the fuel for a lifetime of creativity.

In these volumes Masson's complex, poetic, and psychologically charged works comment on his years in Paris, his struggle against Spanish fascism in the 1930s, and his American exile from Nazi-occupied France in the 1940s.

Today Masson's prints can be found in collections around the world, including the Tate London, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Albertina in Vienna, and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
