Robert Valançay correspondence, 1920-1985 (bulk 1930-1949).

A collection of ca. 1600 letters received by Surrealist writer and translator Robert Valançay. Among the notable correspondents are Surrealist and Dada artists and poets: Jean Arp, Hans Bellmer, Andre Breton, Paul Eluard, Max Ernst, Raoul Hausmann, Richard Huelsenbeck, Georges Hugnet, Pierre de Massot, Ozenfant, Meret Oppenheim, Henri Parisot, Yves Poupard-Lieussou, Man Ray, Hans Richter, Yves Tanguy, and Jacques Villon. The letters' subjects range over themes such as: routine details of publication, artistic life in occupied Paris, the internal rivalries within the Surrealist movement, and the history of Surrealism. Letters from the poets Charles Théophile Féret, Charles Boulen, Fernand Fleuret and Napoléon Roinard are concerned with the promotion of Norman literature. More than 60 letters from Valançay's teacher Maurice Boucher provide information about Valançay's development as a translator. 12 letters from Valançay to various correspondents are part of the archive. Also included are: printed ephemera, ca. 50 photographs by members of the Surrealist group and various writings by Valançay. The writings document his work as a translator, including examples, and his work on Apollinaire.
