Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810946963, Hardcover)

Known as the father of Surrealist painting and one of the major figures of the Dada movement, German artist Max Ernst (1891-1976) created haunting, mysterious, and sometimes whimsical images.

Inquisitive by nature, Ernst pushed the boundaries of artistic techniques such as collage and developed new ones, notably frottage, and drip painting. These experiments not only distinguished his work but also broadened the expressive capabilities for generations of artists, including the Abstract Expressionists. With more than 60 full-color illustrations and an engaging and accessible text, this book provides a solid introduction to Ernst's life, career, and otherworldly art.
