Surrealism began as a 20th century movement and expresses the activities of the subconscious mind through fantastic imagery. The paintings include a variety of content that can include dream interpretation and elements juxtaposed in a hallucinatory setting. Surrealism can be abstract (i.e. Miro) or highly realistic (i.e. Dali).
