Handsome example of this catalogue from the first major exhibition of the Surrealists in the U.S. Held October 14th to November 7th, 1942 on the second floor of the Whitelaw Reid Mansion, the show was conceived by Breton and Duchamp ó the title an allusion to the many expat and refugee artists featured in this exhibition, who fled the hostilities in Europe and settled in New York. Artists featured in the exhibition included Picasso, Arp, Miro, de Chirico, Magritte, Brauner, Tanguy, Ernst, Dali, Kay Sage, Kurt Seligmann, Leonora Carrington, Esteban Frances, Matta, Joseph Cornell, David Hare, Robert Motherwell, Barbara Reis, Lawrence Vail, Matisse (!?) and others. The catalogue was also designed by Duchamp and featuries his famous die-cut "bullet" hole cover on the front, with a counterintuitively titled rear. A classic catalogue from an important exhibition.
