The definitive volume on important, little-known Surrealist artist Enrico Donati—on the occasion of new research and never-before-published material. Enrico Donati first found acclaim when the master of Surrealism, André Breton, lauded him the savior of the movement in 1942. Donati went on to exhibit with major figures of the New York School, such as Rothko, de Kooning, and Pollock. Spanning well over half a century, his artistic career was extraordinarily rich, and he was associated with many of the most influential movements and groups of artists of the time, but fundamentally he remained independent and enigmatic. Dawn Ades acquaints the reader with Donati’s formative relationship to the Surrealists and then moves through his postwar painting up to his death in 2008.
