Hugnet was part of the surrealist movement in the 30s. He was later expelled from the group. In a lot of his work he seems preoccupied with females. But he does little with the form. Like a lot of early collages, his work appears frantic, slapped down in a  hurry to give an impression of a lack of concentrated thought. As if the images did not come from intelligence but impulse.

Its always interesting to go back and see what folks were doing in the first decades of the 20th century. My century. I was born in the middle of it. Like the pit in the middle of the peach.

Georges Hugnet (11 July 1906 – 26 June 1974), was a French graphic artist.

He was also active as a poet, writer, art historian, graphic artist, bookbinding designer, critic and film director.

Hugnet was a figure in the Dada movement and Surrealism.[1]

Georges Hugnet was a French poet, writer, artist, art historian, graphic artist, and film director. He was a figure in the Dada movement and Surrealism. Much of  his work is slightly erotic. Almost tongue in cheek.

First of all let me be the first to apologize for Mr. Hugnet’s name. It sounds like some sort of apparatus. His work is exciting. Especially to those of us with a(n) historical bend. (Like Richard III)
