Explore the diversity of current surrealist artworks, reflecting the technical variety and an almost infinite range of motifs.

What Makes Surrealist Paintings Fascinating?

Surrealism emerged as an intellectual movement in the 1920s and has not lost any of its fascination to this day. At its core is the idea that the true reality of human beings can only be found in the unconscious. The aim was and still is to go beyond realism, expand consciousness, and simultaneously question or challenge the prevailing values and norms. Famous surrealist paintings were created by Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró and René Magritte. Typical features of surrealist pictures are motifs that seem mismatched at first glance, often even contradictory, thereby alienating the effect on the viewer. Because a rational explanation is impossible, individual perspectives are required when it comes to interpretation and understanding.
