Max Ernst

Max Ernst was one of the most influential artists of Classic Modernism; together with Hans (Jean) Arp, he founded the Cologne 'Dada' group. He joined the Surrealism movement and became one of its leading proponents. He developed paintings, collages and sculptures with fantastic landscapes, bizarre creatures such as forest and flying beasts, and fabulous shell flowers. Having met Alberto Giacometti, Ernst became interested in sculptures and henceforth made three-dimensional metamorphoses in his fantastic mythical pictorial language. His graphic series, too, attracted great attention. In addition to his art, Ernst authored poems and autobiographical as well as art-theoretical writings.
