The art -
Surrealism is a movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects, and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself.Its aim was to "resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality".
These images reflect the lasting impact of that original movement.
