Dreamlike, fantastic imagery With Salvador Dalí at its mast, the great ship of Surrealism launched off into the wild and turbulent sea of the Roaring Twenties, its sails puffed full of winds blown by Sigmund Freud and André Breton. With dreamlike, fantastic imagery, the Surrealists made great, sensational waves in the art world. The influence of artists such as Dalí, Ernst, and Magritte, on 20th century film, theatre, literature, and thought is inestimable.

Featured artists include:
Hans Arp, Brassaï, Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Paul Klee, René Magritte, André Masson,, Matta, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Meret Oppenheim, and Yves Tanguy About the Series:
