  • Surrealism was launched as a literary and artistic movement by French poet Andre Breton in 1924, and by the time of his death in 1966 it had become one of the most popular and recognisable art movements of the twentieth-century. Contrary to common belief, surrealism was created in contrast to the chaos and spontaneity of Dada. Surrealism was a highly organised movement with doctrinaire theories that helped it spread to all corners of the globe, until its very name had entered everyday usage as a synonym for the bizarre. Taking the reader on a narrative journey beyond such obvious surrealist stars as Salvador Dali, Surrealism is a digestible introduction to the movement's key figures as well as their works and where to find them. Complete with a glossary of key terms and chronology, this new addition to the Art Essentials series provides an indispensable resource for anyone interested in learning about this influential and wonderfully idiosyncratic style in art.
