I have chosen this slide as it assisted me in writing my dissertation, leading me to find new interesting information which I wouldn’t have necessarily found from a book. From seeing this particular slide it led me to divulge more into Surrealism and the Magazine Minotaure. I had never heard of Minotaure until visually seeing Hans Bellmer’s ‘Poupee’ showcased across a double spread in the magazine, presented on this slide, which now lies in the Visual Resource Centre. I later learnt this magazine was an important stepping stone for artists to reveal their works and to be seen by the public and other influential artists. This slide was also alongside thousands of others which all had a strong connection to Surrealism, each creating new paths for the mind to explore. I could have spent hours in this visually engaging library, uncovering images that may have never and may never be seen.
