modern neo realism artists gallery The Beribboned Bomb: The Image of Woman in Male Surrealist Art
Book by Robert James Belton; University of Calgary Press, 1995

The principal purpose of this book is to explore and to transcribe these conventions and cultural fashions as webs of codeterminacy along lines suggested by Clifford Geertz. He portrayed ethnography as an essen- tially semiotic endeavour, necessitating what he called "thick descrip- tion." This method enables the ethnographer to recognize social behaviour less as an object than as a multiplicity of complex conceptual structures, many of them superim- posed upon or knotted into one another, which are at once strange, irregu- lar, and inexplicit, and which he must contrive somehow first to grasp and then to render. . . . Doing ethnography is like trying to read (in the sense of "construct a reading of") a manuscript - foreign, faded, full of ellipses, incoherencies, suspicious emendations, and tendentious commentaries. . . . 7

I will treat the social world of the male Surrealists as a text, and I will make occasional interventions inspired by a miscellany of methodolo- gies, including Lacanian discourse, various linguistic analyses, and art- historically conventional iconography.

Roland Barthes' descriptions of idiolect, the speech habits of a par- ticular individual, and ideology are useful here. In his famous "Rhetoric of the Image", he writes that the number of responses of the same lexia, construed here as "image," varies according to the individual reader. It is, however, not without an order of sorts, for it depends upon the dif- ferential movements of what A. J. Greimas called "semic axes" - that is, paths through fields of association or horizons of expectation. "The same lexia," writes Barthes, "mobilizes different lexicons," each lexicon cor- responding to a different semic axis. 8 An individual, he continues, can have more than one lexicon, the number and identity of which deter- mine the person's idiolect. The point is that while speech habits do dif- fer from individual to individual, only in the most exceptional circumstances does an utterance completely escape intelligibility. This intelligibility may only be approximate, but it is nonetheless describ- able. However, Barthes recognized that this entails retrieval of the semic axes, achievable only if one undertakes a massive inventory of connota- tion. He continues, "This common realm of the signifieds of connota- tion is that of ideology, which cannot help being one and the same for a given history and society, whatever the signffiers of connotation to which it resorts" (p. 38).

The task of this study, therefore, is to undertake an inventory of con- notation by sifting through the surface structure of men's images of Woman and isolating the ideological misapprehensions which underlie its deep structure. In turn, this will expose the determinants of the Sur- realist horizon of expectations, providing a number of possible semic axes to follow.

One might think that the best way to approach the visual artists would be to explore the influences of older artists, the positions which painters occupy in the hierarchy of modernism, and so forth. This is what has been done elsewhere time and again, with results ranging from the encyclopedic to the formally reductive.
