Transformed by the mysterious pre-Columbian artifacts and monuments that suffused the Mexican landscape, distressed by the failure of political ideology, and inspired by discoveries of scientists of the day, the artists of the Dyn circle played a critical but under-recognised role in the transition from Surrealism to Abstract Expressionism. The journal Dyn – their mouthpiece, travelling exhibition, family album and compendium of source material – offers a window onto their world. The essays in this volume show how the pages of Dyn reveal both the theory behind this new aesthetic and the process the painters and photographers engaged in as they integrated disparate imagery from disparate sources.

Annette Leddy is a Senior Cataloguer and Consulting Curator at the Getty Research Institute. Donna Cornwell is Associate Curator at Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California.
