With our last Wood Style story about the surrealistic forest we are finally finishing our thematic blog.
Max Ernst (1891 - 1976) is one of the most important artists in the history. His brutal vision of the surrealism is seen in his 1920s and 1930s series of dramatic forests very well. These highly structured and almost abstract paintings in which he used his experimental methods such as frottage or grattage, are symbols of the darkness and recall his feelings of the enchantment and terror of the woods near his childhood home.
This painting comes from 1927 and show us that motif of the forest can not be poetic only how we present it here at OKOLO.
Under the tag Wood Style you can enjoy our completed blog all about wood, forest and living in the nature.
