Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

A founding member of both CoBrA (alongside fellow artist, Asger Jorn) and the Revolutionary Surrealist Group, Christian Dotremont found critical acclaim in the art world, mainly for his painted poems that he dubbed ‘logograms’ - an exploration into the power of expression through language, both interpretive and visual.
 
« If I was intensely busy organising things it was to give us
total free rein. »

Christian Dotremont
In the early 1940’s, Dotremont collaborated with Pablo Picasso, Paul Eluard and Alberto Giacometti to participate in their La Main a La Plume group - an early interest in Belgian surrealism sparked his move into art,
 
« Right at the beginning of Cobra, in March 1948, I painted my first “peinture-mot” (wordpainting) with Jorn. »
Christian Dotremont

What is Surrealism?

What is Surrealism?

Surrealism began in the 1920s with artists and writers whose works aimed to reveal the unconscious to unleash subconscious imagination, and explore unusual imagery. Bringing the unconscious into rational life was one key thematic goal of this group influenced by Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis theories.
