Surrealists became interested in creating paintings that were generally based on their dreams.

Their paintings were filled with familiar objects which were painted to look strange or mysterious.

This would help them create paintings of places out of this world.
Surrealists hoped their odd paintings would make people look at things in a different way and change the way they felt about the world they lived in.

Over the years many artists decided to make art this way, from painters to photographers and sculptors. Image: http://search.it.online.fr/BIGart/?p=105http://search.it.online.fr/BIGart/?p=105
