Naturalistic Surrealism

Fast Facts

Artists within this category of Surrealism preferred the unsettling effects from juxtaposing unexpected, dissociated but identifiable elements. Images were chosen from free association and dreams. Events in the artists' subconscious mind were revealed through the process of automatism.

Freud's theories about free association and dream recall were also used.
