Originally a Dada activist in Germany, Max Ernst (1891-1976) became one of the early adherents of the Surrealist circle. Before adhering to Surrealism, Ernst searched every means to attain the sense of the psychic in his art. He also started creating paintings that showed the mysterious dreamlike effect of his collages. Much of the power of Surrealist works begins with the viewer’s unexpected awareness of the incompatibility and absurdity of what the artist pictured.
