I talked about how Max Ernst was influential on my work in a previous post . His best known work was his collage novel (and ancestor to the modern graphic novel) Un Semaine De Bonte (see that above link for more info). But he produced a number of other works, chiefly oil paintings and mixed media work. Here’s a neat YouTube video showing a number of his pieces.
Thanks to Distantmirrors of YouTube for putting this video together.
What I really found neat about Ernst’s work is that he was a self-taught painter. He had no formal training.
