@dangerousMinds on Edward William Frank James (1907–1984) was a poet and a patron of the arts, who used his vast wealth to publish writers... commission theatrical productions (Les Ballets and Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s last work together The Seven Deadly Sins in 1933). He also supported individuals, communities in Mexico and financed artisan workshops, but James is most famously known for his patronage of Surrealist art, in particular the artists Magritte, Leonora Carrington and Salvador Dalí. He also bought works by Giorgio de Chirico, Paul Klee, Pavel Tchelitchew, Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, Max Ernst and Paul Delvaux.
