Pierre MOLINIER

Birthplace France
Year of birth 1900 (1970)
While Molinier repeatedly exhibited his work at Salon des Indépendents, it was censored due to its erotic nature, and the artist remained unknown for many years. In 1955, he was discovered by André Breton, held his first solo show, and established a relationship with the Surrealists. His photomontages provided glimpses into a unique world with their freely interchanged and reassembled body parts. Molinier died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1976.
