Waiting for minimum critic reviews


With Salvador Dalí as its figurehead, the great ship of Surrealism traversed the wild and turbulent sea of the Roaring Twenties, its sails full of winds blown by Sigmund Freud and André Breton. With their mysterious, dreamlike, fantastic imagery, the Surrealists made sensational waves in the art world. The influence of artists such as Dalí, Buñuel, Ernst, and Magritte on 20th century film, theatre, literature, art theory even advertising is inestimable.

Featured artists: Hans Arp, André Breton, Brassaï, Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Paul Klee, René Magritte, André Masson, Matta, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Meret Oppenheim, and Yves Tanguy
