Salvador Dalí famously said, “Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.” Explore the extent of this vision through the masterworks of Surrealism that feature in the Evening sale in London this February. With works by artists including Dalí, Magritte, Man Ray, Miró, Delvaux and Picasso, this highly individualised movement dedicated to exploring the unknown wonders of the subconscious inspired each of these artists to create innovative and often startling works. The following examples reveal how these icons of Modern art responded to the challenges of Surrealism, exposing psychological truths and connecting with the viewer’s imagination on the deepest level.
