Additional Information

Masson’s works Sunand Moonwere both created for and featured in an edition of Verve Magazine, along with several other cosmologically themed pieces by other artists.

This piece was created during Masson’s rejoining of the Surrealists in 1936. Masson had initially left the group in 1929 before rejoining in 1936, he would eventually fully sever himself from the group in 1943.
