British Surrealism in context - A Collector's Eye
The Sherwin Collection.
British Surrealism in Context: A Collector's Eye showcases the largest collection of British surrealist work in the country. Its 224 pages are extravagantly illustrated throughout with colour photographs of items from the collection, and offer rich and varied commentary on its content and context.
It contains essays by Michel Remy, the acknowledged expert on British surrealism; Jon Wood, on sculpture; Silvano Levy, on Toni del Renzio; and a fascinating essay by the collection's owner, Dr Jeffrey Sherwin, revealing many of the anecdotes involving the artists that he has met and illuminating the process and culture of collecting.
