|Year of Birth & Death:||
(1897 - ?)
A front-rank Surrealist Aragon was involved with Litterature from the beginning. He was present at Dadaist celebrations and at the ‘graveside’ of Chirico. Louis’s Traite du Style (1928) is one of the base texts of Surrealism. He also produced manifestos for collages and the plastic arts. After joining the Communist party in 1932 he was all but written out of the history of surrealism. Needless to say he still helped influence the production of other Surrealist texts.
