Surrealist works feature the element of surprise. They are sometimes paintings of things that we know do not exist in real life, or they show situations that could not possibly happen. Sometimes, they are scenes from a dream that an artist may have had. Can you think of any surrealist art? Persistence of Memory by Salvadore Dali
