British Surrealism: 1783-1952Almost 100 years since the concept of surrealism was born, Dulwich Picture Gallery hosts the first major exhibition to explore its origins. British Surrealism: 1783-1952 shows how British Surrealism was a fundamental movement in the history of art and how it actually pre-dated the international movement's official beginnings. The works of more than 30 artists, including Francis Bacon, Henry Moore, Paul Nash and Graham Sutherland, go on display in the exhibition, offering an eclectic mix of paintings, sculptures, etchings and prints from 1783 to 1952. The exhibition poses the question of whether Henri Fuseli and William Blake deserve the title of 'proto-surrealists', and it explores how Surrealism had a major impact on British artists in the 1930s and '40s. Visitors can expect themes of war, dreams, politics, violence, the unconscious and the uncanny.
