Candle Holder - Salvador Dalí
An avant-garde movement born in the wake of the Dada period after WWI, Surrealism embodies both an attitude and a group of artists and intellectuals.
Transdisciplinary, it was nevertheless led by a dominant figure, that of André Breton. According to the French writer, the surrealistic approach lies in the exploration of the unconscious, whether in writing or the arts. It allows the exploration of the dreamlike world, in the hope of reconnecting mankind with their inner feelings.
