Surrealism and the Dream
SPAIN
MADRID  •  Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza  •  Ongoing
 
 
Curator José Jiménez seeks to prove that Surrealism was not just another artistic movement but an attitude to life that has left a profound mark on all subsequent artistic creation. This exhibition attempts to reveal how this transformation of modern sensibility had its roots in the profound connection between dream and image in Surrealism. Paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures and photographs by artists such as André Breton, Salvador Dalí, Paul Delvaux, Yves Tanguy, René Magritte, André Masson, Max Ernst, Jean Arp, Claude Cahun and Paul Nougé are used to construct an overview of this relationship proposed by Mr. Jiménez to which he claims little attention has been given in art-historical studies.
