Surrealism is maybe one of the most mysterious and controversial art styles that have ever existed. Unusual, weird and sometimes even scary images created by this style artists got the very different attitude and reaction in society. Some consider it just as an extravagant vagaries of artists while others find hidden meanings in each detail of an artwork, but everybody agree that it was one of the strongest art movements of 20th century.

Surrealism — a triumph of artist's imagination

Surrealism is a wide term that describes art movement which started in 1920s and ended after Second World War or, according to other critics, in the middle of 1960s. This style was used in film making, theatre, music and literature. In that time artists met in cafes, drawing surreal sketches and discussing the new art style.

Surrealism appeared as a logical continuation of Dada movement which rejected the “common” art values. Most of dadaists became representatives of surreal art when it started spreading from Paris around all the Europe. Other artists had their roots at Cubism and Expressionism, and these art movements influenced on their art style. The art style was extremely popular and even trendy in the inter-war time.

This was a movement which can be described as art outside all moral and aesthetic norms, created without any control and giving to the artists possibility to create in total freedom. The creative power of an artistic mind received all freedom to express thoughts, feelings and ideas.

Subconscious images were the most welcome so artists created the artworks displaying their dreams, hallucinations and random set of images to represent the rejection of a rational approach to art which limited artist's fantasy and creativity. While “traditional” artworks show images which are easy to understand even if they're painted in unusual way, works of surrealists can't be explained by logic — for example, famous “melting” watches by Salvador Dali.
