â€œSurrealism is the stressing of subconscious or irrational significance of imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance effects, unexpected juxtaposition, dreamlike figurines and etc.â€ DalÃ's first Surrealistic period was in 1929. These oil paintings were small collages of his dream images. His work employed a meticulous classical technique, influenced by Renaissance artists, that contradicted the "unreal dream" space he created with strange hallucinatory characters. Dali was later kicked out of the surrealist movement for right-wing tendencies and an slight obsession with Hitler.
