Surrealism art lives in the facet of juxtaposition, developed by unconscious thoughts. Surrealism artwork has been seen as a liberation from the constraints of reality and law and has opened up a world of possibilities. Leading to the production of paintings that are either indefinite, or those that are within the realms of reality, but make no rational sense.

History of Surrealism Art
Surrealism has claimed many famous faces over the years, from Salvador Dali to Pablo Picasso and Rene Magritte. As far as art movements go, surrealism is a fairly recent discovery dating back to the early 1900s.
The surrealism art movement was founded back in 1924 by the poet André Breton. The main premise behind the surrealism movement was to combat the influential 17th and 18th-century movement, Enlightenment, that was said to have quashed the unconscious mind.
Breton was a big believer in the idea that the unconscious mind, that conjured dreams, was the key to artistic expression. Surrealism was also intended to free the minds of the masses from the rational order of society.
While the movement wasn’t founded until 1924, the term ‘surrealism’ was first coined back in 1917 by the poet Guillaume Apollinaire. In which the term was used to describe the ballet performance, Parade, famously costumed by Pablo Picasso.
By 1937, most of the surrealism movement figureheads had been forced out of Europe to escape persecution by the Nazis. This then inspired Max Ernst’s ‘Europe After the Rain’ which was depicted at the height of World War II. This was created using an abstract method called “decalcomania”, a technique that entailed painting on the glass then pressing the glass against a canvas.
After the surrealist artists took refuge, the movement was then spread across the Atlantic. Leading to Jackson Pollock creating the surrealism-inspired ‘Guardians of the Secret’ in 1943. And in Latin America by Frida Kahlo, produced Arbol de la Esperanza translating to “Tree of Hope”.
