Jean Benoît 1922 - 2010

The extraordinary and uncompromising Surrealist Jean Benoît passed away August 20, 2010.  He was one of the most powerful purveyors of Surrealist imagery the world has ever seen.  Benoît joined the Surrealist Movement in 1959 and that same year he performed and designed the costumes for the Exécution Du Testament Du Marquis De Sade.  He was married to Surrealist Mimi Parent (1924 - 2005).  Members of Surrealist Movement will have tributes to him through-out this year and we will post them here when they become available.
