Chastening lesson about Dada

I thought I had at least a passing acquaintance with all the leading figures in the Dadaist and Surrealist movements until Jennie Rigg posted a link to a link to a catalogue of ten female dadaists who were even more outrageous than the boys. (It seems that Marcel Duchamp's notorious urinal was pinched from one of them.) And Lee Miller is not on the list.

But I have long known about Pauline Boty.
