Max Ernst

From Wikipedia: Comte de Lautréamont

…Lautréamont describes a young boy as “beautiful as the chance meeting on a dissecting-table of a sewing-machine and an umbrella”.[5] Similarly, Breton often used this line as an example of Surrealist dislocation. …

In direct reference to Lautréamont’s “chance meeting on a dissection table”, Ernst defined the structure of the surrealist painting: “A linking of two realities that by all appearances have nothing to link them, in a setting that by all appearances does not fit them.”
