SURREALIST ROOTS
The Greek-born Giorgio de Chirico was anointed patron saint of the Surrealists, while Max Ernst created a surrealistic image and text concept based on his Dadaist experiences, which became an especially important benchmark for the most combative of the Surrealists, André Breton. The Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation holds two significant works by de Chirico and a set of six important Max Ernst paintings from the productive period of the 1920s.
