Born in the avant-garde metropolis of Paris, Surrealism was represented by such outstanding artist personalities as Dalí, Duchamp, Ernst, Giacometti, Magritte, Miró, Oppenheim and Picasso. In their often baffling and highly imaginative imagery, the Surrealists addressed the dream, the irrational, and the workings of the unconscious mind. On view in our spectacular exhibition will be over one hundred works from world-renowned museums and private collections.
