Personal note:

Following the death of his wife, Ramona, in November 2018, Desmond Morris is leaving his home in Oxford and moving to County Kildare in Ireland to live close to his family there. He says: ‘Starting a new life at the age of 91 is something of a challenge but I am looking forward to it and hope to be able to start writing and painting again as a soon as I have settled in.'

Recent books:


The Lives of the Surrealists

In May 2018 Thames & Hudson published a new book by Desmond Morris, The Lives of the Surrealists.

He recently completed a text consisting of biographies of 100 of the surrealists. The text proved to be too long for a single volume, so thirty-one artists in this movement were selected for the Thames and Hudson book and the others appear in a Dark Windows Press book called 69 SURREALISTS.
