Dr Jeffrey Sherwin’s new book, British Surrealism Opened Up is, in the words of the author, an ‘everyman guide’ to British Surrealism. The book is an easy-read history of the movement from its beginnings in Paris to its arrival in Britain, including biographies of the British Surrealist artists and others who have included surrealist imagery in their work, as well as over 300 colour images. It also features sections on surrealist techniques and artist groups, as well as a chronology written by art historian Michel Remy. Jeffrey Sherwin has included autobiographical anecdotes and photos of the artists he has met including Henry Moore, Damien Hirst, Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, Sir Peter Blake, as well as key figures of British Surrealism such as Conroy Maddox, Toni del Renzio, Anthony Earnshaw, Desmond Morris and George Melly.

The Hepworth Wakefield was built in 2011 by David Chipperfield Architects to house the city’s nationally important collection of modern and contemporary British art. The Wakefield Permanent Art Collection consists of more than 5,000 works,  at the core of which is a significant group of works by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore which celebrate Yorkshire’s heritage as the birthplace of modern British sculpture. Other leading British artists represented in the collection include Eileen Agar, David Bomberg, Roger Fry, Harold Gilman, Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron, Lucie Rie and William Scott.
