Abstract

Since its inception, Surrealism has been associated with conservative art forms aspiring to a higher synthetic unity, unlike those modern art movements such as Pop Art or installation art, which have eschewed aesthetic and transcendental values in favour of the purely material and commercial. In Displaying the marvellous, Lewis Kachur writes that Breton was 'holding fast to Surrealism as "high" art'.
