Hennuyerian Extensions...
From this vantage point (Hainaut), Surrealism was a slow blinding light. Seen from the industrial landscapes, so close to the French borders, it has a different colour than what can be seen in the capital. These Surrealists remained rather faithful to the methods preached by Breton (automatic writing, against which Nougé became strongly opposed early on). Hennuyer, Magritte, Scutenaire, and Souris were too, but they quickly moved to Brussels, where things began to crystallize. In 1936, Achille Chavée joined the International Brigades (Drombrowski Section) to defend the Spanish Republic. In Paris, he bid farewell to Breton and Aragon, who "fraternally supported him" - though Chavée was the only one to leave.
