Georges Alexandre Malkine (1898-1970) was the only painter to sign the Surrealist Manifesto of 1924; the other signatories were, for the most part, writers. His 1926 painting, Nuit D'amour, was the precursor of the lyrical abstract school of painting.

  • "He has pushed individualism to the point of impertinence! But what art in his expression of the ineffable whenever he took the pains to do so!" — André Breton
  • "Georges Malkine has left his delicate mark on the window of time, made as with a diamond, without altering its transparence, without blurring the view, leaving the purest trace that can only be discerned from a certain angle and in a certain light." — Patrick Waldberg (1970)
