These shop window mannequins decorated by Salvador Dalí and André Masson were among 20 lining a corridor entitled The Most Beautiful Streets of Paris in the 1938 International Surrealist Exhibition in Paris. The show, which included work by 60 artists from 14 countries and heralded the movement’s broad reach and acceptance into mainstream culture, was a newsworthy event and garnered coverage in the popular press. One article included the image by Paris on view here. Ubac was there as both photojournalist and artist; his photography was hanging in another section of the exhibition.
