Hans Bellmer is one of the most illustrious names in the field of erotic art and Surrealism. The Doll comprises a series of photographs that have acquired iconic status and which exemplify the Surrealists' conception of 'convulsive beauty'. They are accompanied by a body of theoretical, poetic and speculative texts written between the 1930s and early 1960s, which reveal Bellmer as one whose ideas are a scandal for reason. This English edition is based exactly upon Bellmer's original, the texts having been translated for the first time from the final German version.
