Jacques-Andre Boiffard, The Big Toe (1929)
Jacques-André Boiffard, although under-represented here (his work dealing perhaps as much with abjection as it does with desire) does make an appearance, with one of his alarming, foreshortened close-ups of a big toe. Boiffard, whose surreal vision was extreme, sharp and succinct, provides a foil to Man Ray, who seems to be everywhere. --http://www.guardian.co.uk/surrealism/story/0,1339,554488,00.html
