Josef Breitenbach escaped to Paris in 1933 when Hitler became Chancellor. There, Breitenbach's close friendship with Max Ernst and his experimentation with printing techniques and color manipulation brought him into contact with the thriving Surrealist movement, although he never became a member of that group. His work was included in a number of exhibitions, alongside that of Man Ray, Brassai and Cartier-Bresson. However, his early work remained unseen until its surprise discovery, after his death, in 1984. Published in association with The Josef Breitenbach Trust, Manifesto is an important addition to the literature available on this extraordinary artist.
