Max Ernst had major influence on Dada and Surrealism with his work. It is particularly his artistic inventions, the range of themes and techniques that have been a source of inspiration for artists up until today. Our collage unites the seemingly arbitrary subject, the simple, almost "unartistic" technique and the profound title, all characteristic elements of Max Ernst's works. [SM].
