Copies of letters and papers concerning the "Affaire Carrouges," a Surrealist controversy also called the "Affaire Pastoureau"
This collection contains copies of seven documents created in the 1950s concerning the Surrealist turmoil originating from the ‘Affaire Carrouges’. In 1951, a conflict between Surrealists Henri Pastoureau and Michel Carrouges due to a disagreement about religion resulted in the fracturing of the French Surrealist movement for three months. There is representation from both sides of the conflict in this collection.

Israel Rosen (1912-1988) was a physician and collector of modern art. The collection consists largely of non-book printed material collected by Israel and Selma Rosen to support their modern art collection. These include newspaper clippings, magazine articles, private gallery invitations and listings, brochures, and fliers, and catalogs from the major auction houses. Materials range in date from 1968-1988.
The material is diverse, including engravings, drawings, posters, and medals, ranging from the 18th to the 20th century. Much of the collection is oriented toward the avant-garde, so even the 18th-century material tends to be literature of the margins. It is especially strong in 19th and 20th century avant-garde material (Symbolisme, Cabaret literature, political and social satire, Surrealism).
