Object (Le Déjeuner en fourrure)

Meret Oppenheim



One of the most recognised of the surrealist objects this fur-covered cup, saucer and spoon embodies the spirit of the movement with wit and precision.


The direct conflict between the purpose of the teacup and its completely unsuitable surfaces sets up a conflict which deliberately disorients. Like a lead Zeppelin or a paper tiger the idea of the cup works precisely because it disorientates.
