141 BOWER, PETER. Turner's Papers: A Study Of The Manufacture, Selection And Use Of His Drawing Papers, 1787-1820.
Distributed for the Tate Gallery, London by Oak Knoll Press, New Castle: 1990. 1854370510 / 9781854370518 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Catalogue of an exhibition. This study of the manufacture, selection and use of the papers that Turner worked on during the first half of his career is an introduction to the depths of that knowledge and experience. It charts the constantly developing relationship between his often very imaginative techniques and the grounds he worked on. It documents his complex responses to the rapid changes and increasing sophistication of the design and production of papers for artists. The focus in this, the first volume, are the years 1787-1820. Late in his life, Turner, on being asked for his advice on painting, brought a lifetime of experience, years of both conscious and absorbed understanding to his deceptively simple reply. With one or two exceptions, there is very little direct evidence of Turner's actual thoughts or feelings about paper other than the papers themselves, where his actual use of individual papers is perhaps the most eloquent testimony we could have. The paper is never merely a ground to carry an image but is always an integral part of the work, from the slightest, speediest pencil sketch to the most highly finished watercolor. Turner's understanding of the interplay of a surface and the marks made on it is a crucial part of the actual visual effect of the work.

145 BRETON, ANDRE. Break Of Day.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 1999. Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Originally published in France in 1934, Break of Day is Andr Breton's second collection of critical and polemical essays, following The Lost Steps (Nebraska 1996). In fewer than two hundred pages, it captures the first full decade of the surrealist movement. The collection opens with an essay composed in 1924 that examines key elements of surrealism and concludes with Breton's harsh revaluation in 1933 of automatic writing. Among the other essays in the volume are "Burial Denied" and "In Self-Defense," two pieces that, in translator Mark Polizzotti's words, "mark surrealism's conscious break from the mainstream and the beginning of its attempts to work alongside the French Communist Party." Also included are "Psychiatry Standing before Surrealism," which addresses Breton's complex, ambivalent views on mental illness and the emerging psychiatric establishment; "Introduction to Achim von Arnim's Strange Tales," which reveals surrealism's debt to such precursors as the German romantics and delineates a surrealistic aesthetic of the macabre; and "Picasso in His Element," in which Breton demonstrates his formidable talents as a critic of the visual arts. Translated into English from the French bt Mark Polizzotti and Mary Ann Caws. Mark Polizzotti is the editorial director of David R. Godine, Inc. He is the translator of numerous works and the author of Revolution of the Mind: The Life of Andr Breton. Mary Ann Caws is Distinguished Professor of English, French, and Comparative Literature at the Graduate School of the City University of New York and the author or editor of some forty-one books, most recently The Surrealist Look: An Erotics of Encounter.
