The Ernst Hall is one of the halls of the Lovian Museum for Modern Art in Newhaven. The art collection is European Surrealism.

Surrealism Edit

Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early-1920s, and is best known for the visual artworks and writings of the group members. The works feature the element of surprise and non sequitur, however many Surrealist artists and writers regard their work as an expression of the philosophical movement first and foremost with the works being an artifact, and leader André Breton was explicit in his assertion that Surrealism was above all a revolutionary movement. From the Dada activities of World War I Surrealism was formed with the most important center of the movement in Paris and from the 1920s spreading around the globe.

Reactions of the visitors Edit

de Chirico's "The Enigma of the Hour" creates a special atmosphere.

I think that Dalí would make a great candidate running for "master of surrealism"
