DESCRIPTION

This presentation will review Surrealism and the major players in the art movement, which took place in the first half of the 20th century. Highlighted are works in the Fine Arts Museums’ collection by artists such as Enrico Donati, Matta, and Joan Miró. We’ll also explore how Oceanic art served as inspiration to the Surrealists.
