Great surrealist painters of all time

Surrealism was a popular artistic style in the 20th century. Artists from France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Germany, the US, Mexico, and South America shared similar wishes to break from the conventions of realistic painting styles. They wanted to express the inexpressible about human psychology, and they pushed art to new limits by juxtaposing the expected and the unexpected, the realistic and the dreamlike.
