About this item
TEMPORARY The Order of Toledo was founded by Luis Buñuel, the Spanish surrealist film-maker, in 1923, when he was a student in Madrid. Along with a number of his peers---Salvador Dalí, Federco García Lorca, Rafael Alberti, and other leading figures in twentieth-century Spanish cultural history---Buñuel would go to Toledo to imbibe the atmosphere in the city and create provocative works of public art. The zenith of the group's activities occurred in 1923-1925, although there were sporadic actions after that date. Fernández Utrera aims to document and interpret Buñuel's and the Order's making of iconoclastic public art in the context of the most critical period in twentieth-century Spanish literary and art history. María Soledad Fernández Utrera is Associate Professor of Spanish at The University of British Columbia.
