An art historian shows how many surrealists and their predecessors were steeped in magical ideas that were expressed in their art: the sorcery of Dali, the alchemy of Picasso, the Theosophy of Kandinsky, and the shamanism of Ernst and Carrington.

A writer and frequent lecturer on art and magic, Nadia Choucha holds a master's degree in art history from Edinburgh University and is currently researching the surrealists for her Ph.D. at Essex University.
