Essay
Max Ernst's oeuvre had decisive influence on Dada and Surrealism. Particularly his ever new and inventive images, as well as the remarkable range of themes and techniques have been a source of inspiration for artists up until today.With the combination of an art historically relevant subject and the Dadaistic execution, our collage is a characteristic example of Max Ernst's creation.
