Movements & periods


Surrealist art is the realm of dreams, the imagination and the absurd. The Surrealist movement emerged in the 1920s and found expression in the visual arts, literature, theatre and film. Surrealist art is well represented in the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen with masterpieces by DalĂ­, Magritte and Delvaux bursting with strange images and objects.
