Dreamlike, fantastic imagery With Salvador Dal 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 Andr Breton. With their mysterious, dreamlike, fantastic imagery, the Surrealists made sensational waves in the art world. The influence of artists such as Dal , Bu uel, Ernst, and Magritte on 20th century film, theatre, literature, art theory--even advertising--is inestimable. This book traces their legacy back to its origins.

Featured artists: Hans Arp, Andr Breton, Brassa , Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dal , Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Paul Klee, Ren Magritte, Andr Masson, Matta, Joan Mir , Pablo Picasso, Meret Oppenheim, Yves Tanguy About the Series:
