Surreal

90 Discovered works of art
The art of Surrealism was born around 1920 in France. Surrealism was a revolutionary movement, a novel view of things.

Writers and artists put into focus everything that can not be grasped by the human mind and lies dormant in the depths of the unconscious. It was the connection between imagined and perceived reality that intrigued the surrealists. It was necessary to break the existing rules and common views and override the laws of logic and reason. Surreality, that is the dissolution of the opposites dream and reality into an absurd reality, into something unreal. The motifs on surrealist paintings often do not seem to fit together or behave unnaturally, like the famous deliquescent clocks. Surrealism is meant to express the unconscious and the supernatural, the fantastic and the absurd. The artist follows his spontaneous inspiration. The unconscious should be able to express itself without control when forms and colors are put on paper. The forerunner of surrealism is Dadaism, which stands for a playful and absurd style. Both art styles are about breaking the norms of the fine arts and overthrowing old hierarchies.

The first painter of Surrealism was serious to Max. He dedicated himself to style-less painting and Dadaism and invented some new painting techniques and automatic writing. Salvador Dalí, who created some delusional images, such as his famous melting clocks or burning giraffes, is also known to most. And although Hieronymus Bosch lived long before the founding of Surrealism, one can also assign his works to this art movement. Because he moved like no other on the border between paradise and hell and created a bizarre world of lust and horror.
