Surrealism

Developed in the 1920s from the Dada movement, Surrealism took off in Paris through visual art and literature. The definitive trait of Surrealist artists is their general neglect for established norms in traditional art, forgoing standards and reason to create artwork full of unexpected pairings, unnatural juxtapositions and an overall feeling of astonishment. Through the Surrealism art, the leading artists of the movement (names like André Breton, Marcel Duchamp and Joan Miró) hoped to challenge the accepted cultural, social, political and personal views of society.

Salvador Dali Divine Comedy The Flatterer Salvador Dali Divine Comedy woodblock engraving "The Flatterer"

Inferno - plate 18
Medium: woodblock engraving. During the 1950's Salvador Dali was commissioned by the Italian Government to illustrate The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri.

The woodblocks were destroyed after printing. This impression was printed on BFK Rives wove paper and issued in 1964 by Les Heures Claires in a total edition of 4765.
