Surrealism, flourishing in the 1920s, aimed to unlock the creative potential of the unconscious mind. Led by André Breton, artists like Salvador Dalí and René Magritte created dreamlike, irrational works. Surrealists explored automatic writing, juxtaposition of unrelated elements, and Freudian psychology to evoke the mysterious and fantastic. Embracing the irrational, Surrealism left an enduring mark on art, literature, and cinema, influencing subsequent generations of artists.
