Gómez-Correa papers, 1920-1995.


Gómez-Correa papers, 1920-1995.

The papers, the bulk of which date from the 1940s, include correspondence with editors, fellow writers and scholars, generally regarding Gómez-Correa's work, though there are letters from Jorge Cáceres describing the surrealist scene in Paris in 1948 and one from César Moro describing the South American literary scene in 1942. There are handwritten and typewritten manuscripts of Gómez-Correa's books of essays and poetry. Spanning his entire career, these writings offer full elaboration of his notion of surrealism as permanent revolution. The collection also includes a few personal photographs; small books, excerpts from books, photocopied articles about surrealism and/or Gómez-Correa, and newspaper obituaries. Among the artwork are a photograph by Man Ray, two photomontages and one engraving by Braulio Arenas, a collage by Jorge Cáceres, an engraving by Hans Arp and a collaborative drawing by four fellow surrealists. Two-hundred and forty books, 62 serials, and 8 catalogs were transferred to the library.
