Max Ernst Video

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.
