Biographical/Historical Note

Yves Poupard-Lieussou was one of the first scholars of Dada and surrealism. He began collecting materials related to the avant-garde in the 1940s, and continued into the late 1970s. As well as assembling an extensive personal archive, Poupard wrote articles on avant-garde artists, collaborated in the production of catalogs, and compiled and published bibliographies. He was also the vice-president of the Association pour l'étude de dada et du surréalisme that in 1965 published one issue of Revue de l'Association pour l'étude du mouvement dada and four issues of the journal Cahiers Dada de l'Association Internationale pour l'étude de Dada et du Surréalisme, 1967-1971. (For a bibliography of Poupard's published work see the Bibliography, p. 45.) He also played an important role in planning and organizing the Dada 50th anniversary exhibition which opened in Paris, then moved to Zurich in 1966-1967.
