Beyond Realism brings together some of the finest examples of Dada and Surrealist art from the National Galleries of Scotland’s collection, featuring works by artists such as Leonora Carrington, Salvador Dalí and René Magritte.

About

With over 40 works by 17 artists, Beyond Realism explores the two principal forms of Surrealist work. The first form is unpremeditated art that relies upon chance effects such as random mark-making and scraping – the type of work practiced by artists like Joan Miró (1893-1983). The second form is the creation of apparently irrational images that occurred to the mind, particularly in dreams, in a realistic style. This route was favoured by artists like Paul Delvaux (1897-1994) while other artists like Max Ernst (1891-1976) combined both approaches in their work.
