About

Georges Alexandre Malkine (French, 1898 – 1970) La voix des harengs solitaires se rapproche du son emis par un xylophone, (The voice of solitary herrings is like the sound of a xylophone), 1967 Mixed media, collage, fish skin, watercolour and ink Signed, dated and dedicated ‘Pour Patrick Waldberg. 1er. Avril 1967 Malkine’ (lower right) 6.7/8 x 12 in. (17.5 x 31.2cm.) Provenance: Patrick Waldberg, the prominent American art critic known for his profiles of Surrealist artists Georges Malkine was the only visual artist named in Andre Breton’s 1924 Surrealist manifesto who Breton claimed ‘had performed acts of absolute Surrealism’. Waldberg, an art critic, who this piece is dedicated to wrote ‘Malkine is perhaps the only artist about whom it can be said that through his life and his work, reality and dreams may cease to be viewed contrarily’. His closest friends were the poets Robert Desnos and Louis Aragon. Manray photographed him kissing his first wife Evett who wore her short like a man’s which lead people to believe (mistakenly) that he was a homosexual. Not only a painter, he acted in 20 films between 1933 and 1939 working with among others Billy Wilder
