Dali used what he described as "hand-painted colour photography" (Mariorenzi, 2005) to depict with a hallucinatory effect the transformation of Narcissus. It is this which gives it it's Surrealist effect. Magrette's definition is very concrete, however surrealism is a loose term that encompasses many ideas.

Diego Martelli remarked that impressionist painters do not “fabricate their theories first and then adapt the paintings to them, but on the contrary…the pictures were born of the unconscious visual phenomenon of men of art (Martelli 2)” Around the same time period a group of writers also demonstrated impressionistic ideals in their writings. As is the case with impressionist painters, writers of the impressionist movement are also difficult to classify. Critics have argued that Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, Stephen Crane and others could all be considered to have impressionistic ideas in their writings.

This broad definition allows artists almost unlimited freedom of expression. Some abstract artists create compositions that have no precedent in nature. Other abstract artists work from nature and then interpret their subjects in a nonrepresentational manner. In other words, as found on Wikipedia by Answers.com, when abstract art represents the natural world, it “does so by capturing something of its immutable intrinsic qualities rather than by imitating its external appearance.” (http://www.answers.com/topic/abstract-art) Historically, abstract art has existed for centuries, as Jewish and Islamic traditional forbids the use of representational art. (http://www.artelino.com/articles/abstract_art.asp) However, the roots of what we generally term “abstract art” can be traced to the Impressionism movement of the 1880s-1890s.
These two works of art are both very different because, Picasso made his woman dark and exaggerated and not so pleasing to the eye. Meanwhile Dufy wanted to show the beauty and grace of his woman with his colors. They both show their brilliance by the way they portray their women. Works Cited Page Bailey, Scott. Last of the Fauves.
They were in effect taking a concept created to heal and using it to create art instead. The movement spread and soon there were surrealist groups cropping up in the metro areas of the world. It was around this same time that Rene Magritte was shown a painting by Giorgio de Chirico and soon became member of the surrealist group. This picture is not meant to inspire the viewer to think about the pipe, but rather to examine how we view reality. To quote Magritte “An object never serves the same function as its image-or its name.” http://quote.robertgenn.com/auth_search.php?authid=704
However, it can also suggest that this ode is taking place quite literally on the Grecian Urn—the ode itself would therefore not be Keats’ own poetry, but the actual Urn. This interpretation is backed up by in Stanza I. when Keats calls the Urn “Sylvan historian, who canst thus express / A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme” (lines 3-4). The urn can express the tale more sweetly because it presents the ode without the passage of time. Thus all the paintings are forever frozen and ever becoming, and any fulfillment would betray potential. Keats asserts that while music is sweet, those which go unheard are sweeter, and thus implores the piper to “pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone” (14).
Andy Warhol, 1963 Warhol was a modest artist and at time could be annoyingly blasé towards his art. With a cheeky nature, Warhol is considered to be the most influential American artist of the second half of the 20th century. He has a signature style which he uses repeatedly in artworks, by using commercial silk-screening techniques to create identical, mass produced images on canvas then varying the color and tone to make each edition look different. Warhol was fascinated by Hollywood, fashion and style. He transferred this interest to his artwork, claiming not to see the difference between a museum and a department store.

The thoughts in this painting are scattered and don’t necessary follow a straight sequence. One can conclude from this that through his painting, Dali incorporates many factors similar to those one would experience when dreaming. In both these works we are introduced into a somewhat distorted sense of reality. Though in thought we can imagine ourselves feeling as small or worthless as a bug a times, it is pretty accurate to say that the possibility of someone suddenly transforming into a bug is highly unlikely.
To be more specific, the truth in this artwork can change, again, according to how people see it. Which means that it’s not wrong to look at truth differently in this artwork, it’s just the truth that is subjective to one’s opinion. In another example, the painting “Mona Lisa”, by Leonardo da Vinci might capture many eyes. In this painting, some people might say that it looks elegant, and some might say that it looks unattractive. Again, this is a subjective matter, and there is no exact truth in this artwork.
