Modern Art:
Surrealism and Dada
 



If these pictures made the viewer jump the artists who painted them were satisfied. This 1920s Parisian movement, led by the poet Andr Breton, announced that rational thought was no longer valid (it had led to World War I), and the irrational, in the form of dreams and the subconscious mind, was a neglected aspect of life. This novel idea made a lasting impression on all the arts.
