Max Ernst, 1891 - 1976, a complex and inventive German painter who made important contributions to the development of Dada and Surrealism.

     German Surrealist Max Ernst is credited with perfecting the “collage" technique. He is also well known for developing a series of semi-automatic processes based on the principle of metamorphosis.
     An intellectual artist born in 1891, Ernst tried hard to not be lumped together with the entire surrealist movement and it's manifestos, magazines, demonstrations, pamphlets and proclamations. However, he was an integral part of it and contributed enormously to the variety of surrealist art — creating a bridge between Dada and surrealism.
     Ernst's art work is the result of technical manipulation with a measure of randomness and ambiguity mixed in to create “associative possibilities" for the viewer — or simply puzzling. It defies attempts to find a uniform style.
      Ernst paintings are surrealist art at some of its highest form because they are so good at making familiar objects 

questionable, improbably structures viewable, and reality ambiguous, doubtful and enigmatic. “By turning the relationships of 'realities' to each other upside down," said Ernst, “the surrealist movement merely helped speed up the general crisis of conscience and consciousness of our time."
