Without people watching over your shoulder, you can come and see forty masterpieces from Boijmans’ surrealist art collection in the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen before they will go on a world tour. An exceptional collaboration that, in this strange reality, results in a memorable encounter with Dalí, Magritte, Man Ray and Agar.
Qu’est-ce que le surréalisme? This is Surrealism!
In 1934 André Breton, leader of the Paris surrealists, published a lecture he had given earlier that year, entitled Qu’est-ce que le surréalisme? (What is surrealism?). A historical edition, with a famous illustration by René Magritte on the cover, which is part of this exhibition. This is Surrealism! addresses this central question via key works by Salvador Dali, René Magritte, André Breton, Man Ray, Eileen Agar, Max Ernst and other artists divided into nine themes.
