XIX - XXth century sculptures

ERNST Max (1891-1976)

Known as one of the main figures of the surealist movement, his work in sculpture is all the more noticeable. He was self-taught and soon joined the Dada club before meeting the founders of the surealist movement and befriending artists like Arp and Breton. His first works in space are painted relief woods, following the dadaist spirit and wooden objects. His work then tends to be more abstract, with the use of polychrome and he later worked on fabulous beings sculpt on granite.
