Surrealism originated in the trenches of the First World War, when the youthful André Breton - and others - were exposed to the shock of the traumatized human psyche. From these experiences, not only did an ardent anti-war spirit emerge, but the oneiric disorientation witnessed by Breton became a leitmotif of the subsequent Surrealist movement. Surrealism, and its anarchic predecessor Dada, defined themselves in radical opposition to the brutalized societies all around them - and their rejection of the values of European life drew them ineluctably towards non-European beliefs.
The Surrealists found many ways to provoke the ‘irruption of otherness’ in the midst of 1920s Paris: the cultivation of hypnotic trance states and automatic drawing, the deliberate wanderings and chance encounters on the streets of themetropolis, the pilgrimages to sites deemed sacred by the group. The Surrealists collected, categorized, displayed and juxtaposed strange or incongruous artefacts. They organized exhibitions of ‘primitive’, ‘psychotic’, ‘found’, ‘natural’

I love your art! I read over your licensing and still have a question. I am interested in using one of your pictures as a partial, faded out background for a website header. How does this fit in to licensing?
