"Angels of Anarchy" reconsiders the art-historical tradition of women Surrealists. It draws on an international range of artists to investigate how their practices responded to, developed, enriched, and even subverted the conventions and traditions of art history. One hundred color images by thirty artists are accompanied by essays that illuminate fascinating aspects of the Surrealist approach.

By presenting these important artists side-by-side for the first time, "Angels of Anarchy" allows for an unprecedented appreciation of the variety and depth of these artists' contributions to the field of Surrealism and art in general.
