Rate this:
Surrealism, originating in Paris in the 1920s, was a movement aimed at establishing a perpetual revolution that would disrupt and disorganize both art and society. The key to these revolutionary art forms and attitudes was Freud's concept of the unconscious that spurred the Surrealists to develop techniques to create images that fused the unconscious dream state with conscious reality. Their faith in art and altered psychological states formed a lasting legacy and cornerstone of modern art. This volume presents the vivid world of the subconscious with 96 examples of haunting imagery by some of the most creative artists of the twentieth century such as Duchamp, Ernst, Miro, Arp, Magritte, Masson, Giacometti, Dali, and even, Picasso.
