This landmark volume examines the life and work of the extraordinary Swiss Surrealist Meret Oppenheim. Although she became famous at the age of 23 for her fur-covered teacup, she subsequently suffered years of critical neglect, and her subversive work has only recently begun to receive the acclaim it deserves. This beguiling catalogue covers the full range of her art, embracing sculpture, painting, drawing, collage, assemblage, photography, fashion and jewelry design, and a selection of Oppenheim's poems.
