The Art of Max Ernst

"No painter more completely personified the interwar avant-garde than Max Ernst.
In retrospect he appears to have been almost predestined for a leading role in the
particular poetic, intellectual, and anti-aesthetic climate that prevailed after 1918
in the plastic arts, and his work is characterized by the anti-art inventions - and
concomitant pictorial problems - of that era... In the extraordinary range of his
styles and techniques he is to Dada and Surrealism what Picasso is to the
20th century as a whole."
William Rubin, Director, Painting and Sculpture MoMA 1973-1988
