The Surrealist movement first appeared in the early 1920s, and has shaped the course of art history significantly. The goal that many Surrealists share is to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality.” In other words, the purpose of Surrealism is to portray the imagination by revealing ideas and images from the unconscious mind. The movement occurred just after World War One, when many people were still coping with the grief and devastation that the war had brought. Many European countries were severely affected by the war as many economies were suffering a Depression. During this time, the Surrealists focused their energy on escaping from the devastation that surrounded
As his favorite study; Surrealism suggested ways to describe the unconscious; and Cubism guided his understanding of picture space. In 1939, Pollock began to make efforts to treat his alcoholism, and his analyst encouraged him to create drawings. These would later feed his paintings, and they shaped Pollock 's understanding of his pictures not only as outpourings of his own mind, but expressions that might stand for the terror of all modern humanity living in the shadow of nuclear war. Pollock 's greatness lies in developing one of the most essential abstract styles in the history of modern art, separating line from color, redefining the categories of drawing and painting, and finding new means to describe pictorial space.

The analysis of the two stories will attempt to generalize what elements of real and fantastic are in most, if not all of “lo real maravilloso.” Before we analyse how magical and real elements are used in short stories, we first need to point out the definition of this literary style. Magical realism was first coined by German Franz Roh in 1925 to refer to a style of painting. Later, Alejo Carpentier took the term and expanded on it thanks to his early influences of surrealism. Carpentier was in fact was not satisfied by his poor contribution to surrealism, so he took ideas from the literary approach.
Since Poe lived in the Romantic era it isn’t that odd that he express his concerns of what changes the Industrial Revolution might bring. Barbarese says “. While Romantic art is essentially optimistic, and optimists don’t usually write satire, Poe was unique among American Romantics. He struggled with Romantic ideals - and he had a sense of humor”. (Barbarese 2004)
This book took place during the Renaissance. The renaissance were considered to be the cultural rebirth of Europe. The many arts of life were important including, painting and literature. This really shows in the book because it is very focused on painting and art. Juan expresses many times that painting is interesting to him, but never was supposed to do it, due to slavery.
The last decades of the 19th century saw the rise of new painting techniques in Western Europe, that challenged the Classical approach that the arts had acquired and denominated what was considered a work of art or not. One of such movements was Symbolism, which began as a literary movement in France with Charles Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du mal written in 1857. It is often considered a definite break from Classical painting, as it emphasizes symbols and ideas through the use of forms, lines, shapes and colors; fighting the representational nature of the former. Even though both are opposite tendencies, this didn’t stop emerging artists from combining them to reach new levels of expressions, as is the case with Gustave Moreau, a French painter

In the first artwork, we see lots of happy and joyful emotions that come out in the colors and actions of the characters in the painting. The creator of the painting uses a lot of bright colors to express the happy vibes.
Modernism is a literary and artistic movement of the 20th century that can be defined as a set of values produced between World War I and II. Some examples of Modernist Literature are the essays Modern Fiction by Virginia Woolf and From Romanticism and Classicism by T.E. Hulme. These essays characterize Modernism by it’s rejection of materialism and the sensible view of hopes and dreams that it holds. And though not all pieces created in this time were an example of modernist literature, All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque is. This is due to its strong stance that man has limits, unlike the past literary movement, Romanticism, which viewed man as a somewhat perfect creature possible of anything, and the fact that it strayed from materialism, and focused more on internal conflict.
In the early 20th century after the world war I, this was the period when modernism started. There was the industrialization, development of modern technology to solve problems and there was the modernist movement in writing also. This movement was characterized by a lack of confidence in the traditional ways of explaining existence and its meaning. Family, and religion were no longer seen as being dependable. Writers could not find any meaning in the old ways of writing, they did see the need to start writing in new techniques as the world was changing.
