When poetry meets art

Max Ernst created the work la puberté proche... (les pléiades) in 1921 in Cologne. In 1919, having returning from military service, the German artist co-founded the group of Cologne Dadaists together with Johannes Theodor Baargeld and Hans Arp. In 1922 Max Ernst left his family and went to Paris, where he joined the Surrealists. The present painting, executed in collage, gouache and oil on paper mounted on cardboard, shows him already making the transition from Dada to Surrealism. The artist had reached a turning point in his life, and his move to Paris represented the start of a new phase in his eventful career.
