A brief history of surrealist paintings

Surrealist paintings reveal the workings and imaginings of the unconscious mind. Emerging in the early 20th century, the Surrealists sought to revolt against realism and rationalism, and instead unlocked the vision of the repressed mind.

Starting off as a literary movement, Surrealism was founded by Andre Breton. Surrealist painting, writing, drawing, sculpture and film-making took inspiration from Freudian theories of the unconscious and was directed towards a natural and unpremeditated form of expression. Characterized by aesthetic beauty and psychological depth, Surrealist paintings rely on a sense of automatism, in which art is expressed by the unconscious mind, rather than by conscious thought.
