"View" was an American literary and art magazine published from 1940 to 1947 by artist and writer Charles Henri Ford, and writer and film critic Parker Tyler. The magazine is best known for introducing Surrealism to the American public.Ford, Charles Henri (editor), "View: Parade of the Avant-Garde", Thunder's Mouth Press, 1991. ISBN 1-56025-014-3]

The magazine covered the contemporary avant-garde and Surrealist scene, and was published quarterly as finances permitted until 1947. "View" featured cover designs by renown artists with the highly stylised typography of Tyler along with their art, and the prose and poetry of the day.

Many of the contributors had been living in Europe, but took refuge in the U.S. during World War II bringing with them the avant-garde ideas of the time and precipitating a shift of the center of the art world from Paris to New York. It attracted contributions from such writers and artists as Pavel Tchelitchew, Yves Tanguy, Max Ernst, Andre Masson, Pablo Picasso, Henry Miller, Paul Klee, Albert Camus, Lawrence Durrell, Georgia O'Keefe, Man Ray, Jorge Luis Borges, Joan Miro, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Jean Genet, Rene Magritte, Jean Dubuffet, and Edouard Roditi."
