This lecture will explore the different techniques and imagery that Surrealist painters, indebted to the psychoanalytical writings of Sigmund Freud, used to create a troubling dream reality. Salvador Dali’s super-realistic, strange visions, Joan Miró’s works suggesting the playful musings of childhood, Giorgio de Chirico’s enigmatic compositions, Max Ernst’s fantastical figural paintings, and Yves Tanguy’s inner landscapes exemplify the diverse ways in which Surrealist artists looked for inspiration in the realms of the unconscious and the imagination.
