Jacqueline Lamba married André Breton, the leader of the Surrealist Group, in 1934. A talented artist in her own right, Lamba participated in many Surrealist activities and her paintings appeared in group exhibitions from 1934 to 1948. The Bretons moved to New York in the early years of the Second World War, joining a number of Surrealists who were already exiled there.
