AGIP - Reportages photographiques 17 January 1938, 17.8 x 13 cm, one photograph
Original photograph, contemporary silver halide print, taken at the International Surrealist Exhibition in Paris in 1938. “AGIP - Reportages photographiques” “AGIP - Photographic Reports” stamp on the verso.
In the image, Salvador Dali is playing with André Masson's mannequin, with a hairstyle like a bird cage. This mannequin called @Le bâillon vert à bouche de pensée#, was exhibited next to that of Marcel Duchamp.
Stencilled inset glued on the back of the picture: "Le vernissage de l'exposition des "surréalistes" a lieu ce soir, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Les artistes présentent des mannequins qu'ils ont habillés à leur idée. L'imagination et la fantaisie semblent chez eux bien plus développées que l'art de la mode ; aussi voici comment l'un d'eux conçoit le chapeau d'une élégante. Photo AGIP 17 janvier 1938.” “The private viewing of the exhibition of the “surrealists” takes place tonight, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The artists present the mannequins that they have dressed as they see fit. Imagination and fantasy seems to be better developed in them than the art of fashion; also, this is how one of them perceives the hat of someone elegant. Photo AGIP 17 January 1938.”
The photographic agency the Rue des Archives, owner of AGIP agency collection, has not taken any other prints of this photograph.
