Surrealism Art Prints

The Surrealism Art Movement is believed to have been born from the Surrealist Movement in poetry and literature first coined in 1924 Paris by André Breton in his "Manifesto of Surrealism." Influenced by theories and studies of Sigmund Freud, the movement focused on free association of thoughts that had previously been restricted by reason and by the limitations of social correctness. Initially centered in Paris, the movement eventually spread throughout the world.

Early Surrealism artists included German Max Ernst (1891-1976), French-born Andre Masson, and Spanish-Catalan Joan Miro (1893-1983). Other well-known 20th century producers of surreal art include world-famous Salvador Dali, Yves Tanguy, American-born Man Ray and Rene Magritte. These groundbreaking artists, and many more, are represented in our fantastic collection of surreal lithographs and surrealism prints for sale. Their works are unique and revolutionary creations that often defy logic or clear comprehension.

Medium: woodblock engraving. During the 1950's Salvador Dali was commissioned by the Italian Government to illustrate The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri.

Salvador Dali Divine Comedy The Wood and the Suicide Salvador Dali Divine Comedy woodblock engraving "The Wood and the Suicide"

Inferno - plate 13
Medium: woodblock engraving. During the 1950's Salvador Dali was commissioned by the Italian Government to illustrate The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. Dali created 101 watercolors to represent scenes from Dante's travels through Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise. However, the extravagantly surrealistic art works were not well received by the Italian public at the time and the government canceled the project. Fortunately, French publisher Joseph Foret was interested and work began on the engraving of woodblocks, chosen as the best medium to represent the nuances of Dali's compositions into print format. The woodblocks were destroyed after printing.
