Art by the great German surrealist Max Ernst!

Would Modern/20th-Century art happen to be your period of choice?

Thanks for asking. As simple as just collecting art books in the mid-seventies and learning about a couple painters. I guess I like the 20th century the best. Really Ernst was always amazing to look at because of his ugly anti-art da-da stance and mixing in a drama only he seemed to have. I'm no expert but an arm-chair art-booker. I'm sure to see any of his work in real life, it must look unworldly. What bugs me the most is I don't know if I have ever really seen the correct color he wanted, as reproductions are always so off? If I was really motivated I guess I would have searched them out! HA

 

It has always been surrealist use of "3D" that was always fun. Not saying that there was not the use earlier, just something different with them?

It's not titled if I recall. Jon Burleson out of Dallas. A family friend. I actually own 2 of his originals. Hoping to snag more next time I see him.
