Six collages originaux de Toyen. fine copy. number 846 of an edition of 900 copies, printed on fine pink Buvard Extra-Marais paper. black protected wrappers .illustrated with six collages et three pointes-sèches Issu de la collaboration entre l’auteure Annie Le Brun et l’artiste visuelle Toyen, Sur le champ est un livre surréaliste de quarante pages, respectant un format moyen de 25 centimètres par 16,5 centimètres. Aux quarante pages sur lesquelles cohabitent texte et collages s’ajoutent un justificatif de tirage - l’édition originale a été tirée en 900 exemplaires — et un achevé d’imprimé. Textes et collages ont été imprimés sur un papier buvard de couleur rose, matériel plus poreux que le papier régulier, rappelant la texture de la toile d’artiste. Originaire de Tchécoslovaquie, l’artiste Toyen est d’abord connue pour avoir cofondé le groupe surréaliste de Prague avec son ami, le peintre Styrský. En 1947, elle s’exile à Paris, prend part au mouvement surréaliste et collabore avec plusieurs artistes, notamment Annie Le Brun et Radovan Ivsich. While still a student, Annie Le Brun discovered the shock of surrealism; She read Nadja first, hand copying Crazy Love and the Anthology of Black Humor. Shortly after, in 1963, she met André Breton and took part in the activities of the surrealist movement until 1969, on the dissolution of the group. Later, against what she considered to be the programmed liquidation of singularity, love and distraction, she confided that "with the surrealists one breathed, if only to discover the multiplicity of horizons what will have opened this unique attempt in the twentieth century to think all man?" This is how she stood in the wake of surrealism, embracing her quest for "convulsive beauty" and her lyrical insurrection. In 1972, she found a collective activity around Editions Now founded by Pierre Peuchmaurd, with the poet and playwright Radovan Ivsic, who became her companion, as well as Georges Goldfayn, Gerard Legrand and the painter Toyen. The latter had illustrated in 1967 her first poetic book On the field. In these years, she wrote and publishes several other collections, which will be collected in 2004 in a single volume, under the title Ombre pour ombre. During this prolific period of creation, she co-authored, among other collections and essays, three hybrid works in which her poetic writing is combined with illustrations - both photographic and plastics - from different artists: The Crossing of the Alps, co-written in 1972 with Radovan Ivši? and illustrated by the photographs of the Italian sculptor Fabio De Sanctis; Nearby the nomads, a poetic collection illustrated by Toyen in 1972; and finally Annular Moon, poetic story also illustrated by Toyen in 1977.
