Inside Art Movements: Surrealism Summary

Inside Art Movements: Surrealism by Susie Brooks

Discover the art movements that shaped our world in this wonderfully visual series for children aged 9 and up

The Surrealist moment turned the art world on its head with bold, strange works of art that celebrated the subconscious and the power of dreams, and delighted in defying convention. With artists as celebrated as Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte amongst them, the Surrealists' legacy lives on today, influencing media from art and music to film and advertising.

An accessible and in-depth guide to some of the most popular and significant art movements, Inside Art Movements explores their origins, evolution and legacy in today's world. For readers aged 9 and up.
