->''It was the end of sorrow lies. The rail stations were dead, flowing like bees stung from honeysuckle. The people hung back and watched the ocean, animals flew in and out of focus. The time had come. Yet king dogs never grow old - they stay young and fit, and someday they might come to the beach and have a few drinks, a few laughs, and get on with it. But not now. The time had come; we all knew it. But who would go first?''

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.
