Compare UncannyValley and EldritchAbomination. See also SurrealHorror and SurrealHumor. Compare and contrast {{Absurdism}}; both movements emerged in the wake of WorldWarI and are stylistically similar, but whereas surrealism [[WorldOfSymbolism uses the bizarre to convey meaning]], absurdism is all about [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic embracing meaninglessness.]] Also compare [[UsefulNotes/{{Dada}} the (anti)-art movement]] that preceded and inspired surrealism.

One major branch used very abstracted art to symbolically represent the subconscious. The other, better-known, branch attempted to more-or-less literally depict the strange logic of one's dreams--this was the surrealism of Salvidor Dalí's melting clocks, René Magritte's flying men in bowler hats with apples on faces, and Elsa Schiaparelli's shoe hats and exotic lobster dresses.

Surrealism was a movement encompassing both literature and art, originating in Europe between the World Wars. The aim was to make art that reflected the fundamental truth about the world; they took the name surrealism (the prefix ''sur-'' means "super") because they considered themselves super-realists. They were also huge fans of Sigmund Freud, whose psychoanalysis was the hottest fad of the decade, so the surrealists' super-realism was essentially art about the subconscious, [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian as Freud envisioned it]].

They were also huge fans super-realists, the way earlier writers would consider themselves super-naturalists. To them modern cities and urban life had its own sense of the "uncanny" and "weird" as forests or dark woods would in fairy-tale landscapes. In this, they followed the influence of Sigmund Freud, whose psychoanalysis was the hottest fad of the decade, so the surrealists' super-realism was essentially art about the subconscious, [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian as Freud envisioned it]].
