Art History Spotlight: Surrealism
Greetings and salutations, deviants!  Today, I bring to you the second edition of the monthly Art History Spotlight series!
As you know from our last edition of Impressionism, The Art History Spotlight Series will be exploring various movements in art, the technique used therein, major artists behind it and it's influence on dA!
The second edition focuses on Surrealism, as decided by this poll.  
I'm happy this was chosen, not just because it's such a popular and recent movement, but can be misrepresented and confused often.
So with no further ado, I present to you...
Surrealism
[sur-re-al-iz-uhm]
as defined by Merriam-Webster
: the principles, ideals, or practice of producing fantastic or incongruous imagery or effects in art, literature, film, or theater by means of unnatural or irrational juxtapositions and combinations
