View was an American art and literary magazine published between 1940 and 1947. It was best known for introducing Surrealism to the American public and it was edited by Charles Henri Ford, a surrealist poet from Mississippi. It included contributions from Paul Bowles, Philip Kamantia, Harold Rosenberg, Aaron Copland, Lawrence Durrell, Man Ray, Alexander Calder, Max Ernst, and Marcel Duchamp, among others. Its objective throughout its seven year duration (36 numbers in 32 issues) was to fill the void of European avant garde periodicals that weren’t available during the war. It’s a stand-out in the history of American magazines, and New York based ones in particular.
