By Richard Leslie

Surrealism, originating in Paris in the 1920s, was a movment aimed at establishing a perpetual revolution that would disrupt and disorganize both art and society.

Their faith in art and altered psychological states formed a lasting legacy and cornerstone of modern art. Surrealism attracted some of the most creative artists of the twentieth century: Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Joan Miro, Jean Arp, Salvador Dali, Andre Masson, Rene Magritte, Alberto Giacometti, and even, Pablo Picasso. Here is the story of Surrealism along with a collection of 96 haunting images, revealing the vivid world of surrealism.
