Max Ernst

Max Ernst was a prominent German avant-garde artist who helped found both Dadaism and Surrealism. He worked in a variety of media including film, collage, painting, and frottage—a technique wherein he collected pencil rubbings of different objects surfaces as source material. “Creativity is that marvelous capacity to grasp mutually distinct realities and draw a spark from their juxtaposition,” he once reflected.
