Renée Gauthier was one of the earliest women to be involved in surrealism.

A close friend of Benjamin Péret, Gauthier took part in the hypnotic sleep experiments organized by René Crevel in 1922-3.[1] She contributed an account of a dream, starting “I am in a field with Jim”, to the first issue of La Révolution surréaliste in December 1924.[2]
