      Books in Focus: Surrealism in Britain in 1936

      Our series of ‘Books in Focus’ sessions looks at artists’ books and archive material held in the special collections of the National Galleries of Scotland. In June 1936 Surrealism descended on Britain, thrilling and confusing the press and public in equal measure, with Surrealists including André Breton and Salvador Dalí crossing the channel to visit the first exhibition of Surrealist art in Britain. This session will tell the story of that pioneering exhibition using original publicity material, photographs and letters from the Roland Penrose archive.
