Minotaure 1934 - 1936
Surrealist-oriented magazine founded by Albert Skira in Paris. With contributions by André Breton, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Paul Eluard, Jean Giono, René Magritte, Henri Matisse, Man Ray, Pablo Picasso and many others. Minotaure was a luxurious publication, sporting original artworks on its cover by prestigious artists like Pablo Picasso. The magazine was sponsored and advised by Surrealist art patron Edward James, and is still one of the richest sources of information about the pre-war Surrealist world. In many ways, it was the successor to Le Surrealisme au service de la revolution, the group journal that ceased publication in 1933. Minotaure brought to the attention of the art world many little-known figures such as Hans Bellmer, Victor Brauner, Paul Delvaux, Alberto Giacometti, and Roberto Matta. It is also the only surrealist publication to feature articles on architecture.
