With roots of Dada and in a group of young French writers and poets, surrealism entered the Paris scene in 1924, searching for the “more real then real world behind the real.”
Surrealism: Pure psychic automatism by which it is intended to express, either verbally or writing, the true function of thought. Thought dictated in the absence of all control exerted by reason, all aesthetic or moral preoccupations. (Try figuring out that definition)
Salvador Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. Dalí was highly imaginative, and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior. His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork, to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem, and to the irritation of his critics.
Im definitely going to continue on this topic because there are so many cool Surrealism paintings out there. Im going to find a few more to post and continue on my research.
