Room 202 Words in Freedom. Surrealism and Magnetic Fields

Room?s details

The birth of Surrealism was inextricably linked to literature. For many surrealist artists, painting and sculpture shared the same nature as prose and poetry, in the way they revealed the deepest emotions and psychological processes. One of the major artists was Joan Miró, whose works in the 1920s exemplified this blurring of the boundaries between drawing and writing and between the visual and the poetic. One of the main media used by the avant-garde between the wars was collage. This room presents a selection of the work of three outstanding representatives of the history of Spanish collage; Benjamín Palencia, Adriano del Valle and Nicolás de Lekuona, who took the language of modernity and cultivated photo-collage in a remarkable way.
