SurrealismBook - 2009
Why did artists in the 1920s begin to create surreal pictures and sculptures? Who were the main Surrealist artists? Where can you see the influence of Surrealism today? 'Surrealism' answers all these questions. It also explains the Surrealists' interest in dreams and the subconscious, identifies the different styles and interests of many of the leading Surrealist artists, and shows how Surrealism included writing, music, theatre, and film, as well as art. 'Art on the Wall' is an exciting and informative series that explores a range of art movements and styles. Each title in the series looks at the history behind the movement and discusses the techniques used by its artists. The text is supported with stunning paintings and other artworks that illustrate each art style. The titles also include biographies of well-known artists and try-it-yourself activities that encourage readers to create their works of art using the techniques of the movement.
