A key member of the first Dada and then Surrealism in Europe in the 1910's and 1920's Max Ernst used a variety of mediums - painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture, and various unconventional drawing methods - to give visual form to both personal memory and collective myth. By combining illusionistic technique with a cut-and-paste logic, he made the incredible believable, expressing disjunctions of the mind and shocks of societal upheavals with unsettling clarity.
