Lot Essay

'The joy in every successful metamorphosis conforms ... with the intellect's age-old energetic need to liberate itself from the deceptive and boring paradise of fixed memories and to investigate a new, incomparably expansive area of experience, in which the boundaries between the so-called inner world and the outer world become increasingly blurred and will probably one day disappear entirely' (M. Ernst, What is Surrealism?, Paris, 1934).
