Fantasy Drawing Inspired by The Subconscious

A selection of 7 artists from Yesterday and Today that are continuing to inspire the charm of the surreal.

1) Giovanni Battista Tiepolo
Giambattista Tiepolo was recognized by contemporaries throughout Europe as the greatest painter of large-scale decorative frescoes in the 1700s. His luminous, poetic frescoes, while extending the tradition of Baroque ceiling decoration, epitomize the lightness and elegance of the Rococo period. His art celebrates the imagination by transposing the world of ancient history and myth, the scriptures, and sacred legends into a grandiose, even theatrical language.

2) Theodore Gericault
A forerunner of Romanticist painting in France, Theodore Gericault, was a typical romantic
artist, and the leader of the French realistic school. His most famous work, The Raft of the
Medusa, was a watershed moment in the history of modern art.

Recognized as a highly imaginative “creator of devils”, Hieronymus Bosch was a European
painter of the late Middle Age. He is internationally recognized as an eccentric painter of
religious visions who dealt in particular with the torments of hell.

4) Salvador Dali

Salvador Dalí is among the most versatile and prolific artists of the 20th century and the most
famous Surrealist. Surrealism championed the unconscious as the primary motor of human
behavior, coupling this with an aspiration to political revolution. Though the concept of
Surrealism was new to him, Dalí was already well versed in the psychoanalytic theories of
Sigmund Freud.
