What exactly is surrealism? It's an art movement that began in the 1920s after World War I. It looked nothing like art that had been made before it and reflected the artists' imaginations more than the real world. In this book, A friendly gallery worker guides readers through the unique art movement as well as explaining the difference between a museum and a gallery and offering profiles of the most famous surrealists, such as Salvador Dalí. In addition, fun art activities encourage readers to try different surrealist techniques and ideas in artwork of their own.
