Biography
In 1924, André Breton (1896–1966) published the first manifesto of Surrealism, and from then until his death was the chief organizer and theoretician of the movement. He broke with the communist party in 1935 and soon after met Diego Rivera and Leon Trotsky in Mexico prior to moving to New York and founding the magazine VVV with Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, and David Hare. He published numerous collections of poetry and prose.
