Max Ernst

You can’t help running into Max Ernst’s work. For one thing, he has a fabulous name for a surrealist. And his work is always fascinating, fun, and unexpected.

I quote from the history of collage.

Max Ernst discovered the process of surreal collage in 1919, using Victorian engravings (many originally made from photographs), … “I was struck by the obsession which held under my gaze the pages of an illustrated catalogue … It was enough at that time to embellish these catalogue pages, in painting or drawing, and thereby … transformed into revealing dramas my most secret desires from what had been before only some banal pages of advertising.” Ernst credited Max Klinger (1857-1920), a Symbolist painter, as the inspiration for his collages. Many of Ernst’s collages might better be termed composites – because many strive for a seamless consistency.
