René Crevel

1900 (Paris) – 1935 (Paris)

Crevel met Vitrac and Limbour while they were doing part-time military service (mornings only). Breton, Aragon, Éluard and Man Ray were all surrealist-circle friends of Crevel’s. He regularly visited and corresponded with Stein. Breton, Char, Éluard and Crevel formed a revolutionary writers’ and artists’ association in 1932. He met Wells in the South of France. Money troubles forced him to sell his paintings by his friends Picasso, Arp, Tanguy, Ernst and Laurencin. Both Dalí and Buñuel went to Spain with him.
