Méret Oppenheim

Women were largely regarded as the subjects and muses of the men dominated Surrealism, among them Max Ernst, Salvador Dali, Man ray and Rene Magritte. So, it is notable that 'painter' and 'sculptor' Meret Oppenheim.(german-swiss, 1913-1985) made a place for herself as one of the Surrelist central artists and produced some of its own stunning works. In 1932 she travelled to Paris, the centre of the movement, and was very soon paritcipate actively in their meetings and exhibition itself. By the 1936 she had her first solo exhibition. Assuming she, like her artistic peers, must be male critics and admirers of her work often mistakenly referred to her as Mr. Oppenheim.

This Surrealist object pop out and was inspired by a conversation between Meret Oppenheim, Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar.Admiring Oppenheim's fur-covered bracelet, by observing her, Picasso remarked that one could cover anything with fur, to which she replied, "Even this cup and saucer."

"NOBODY GIVES YOU FREEDOM, YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT".

"EASY THINGS WAS ONCE THE HARD THINGS".

Two Surrealist Manifestos were issued by the Surrealist movement, in 1924 and 1929. They were both written by Andre Breton, who also drafted a third Surrealist manifesto which was never issued. The first Manifesto was written by Breton and published in 1924a numerous examples of the applications of 'Surrealism' to poetry and literature.Breton also discusses his initial encounter with the surreal in a famous description of a hypnagogic state, a state of thinking randomly and appears to be strangely and that's how he thought of a man cut into two by the window. These reflects Breton's thought apprehension of Surrealism as the juxtaposition of "two distant realities" united to create a new one.Breton propose that one give oneself up to one's dream, allowing oneself to be satisfied by what is recieve from dream.

"The second manifesto"

Besides creating art objects, Oppenheim also famously appeared as a model for photographs by Man Ray, most notably a series of nude shots of her interacting with a printing press.Meret Oppenheim was born on 1913 in Berlin.Oppenheim is named after Meretlein, a wild child who live in the woods in the novel "Der Grune Heinrich"(The Green Heinrich) by Gottfried Keller.Oppenheim had two siblings, a sister named Kristin (born 1915) and a brother named Burkhard (born 1919).

"The Fur Ring"

"The Fur Teacup and Saucer"

In my opinion, Oppenheim's ways of making an artwork is very unique, compared to other artist. She put everyday things into one whole new object, by allowing her thought control her.She wants people to focus on her work of art, also she want them to think that everyday objects can be a great subject.

Breton asked Surrealists to assess their "degree of moral competence", and along with other theoretical refinements issued by the Second term 'manifeste du surréalisme'.
