J.H. Moesman, Self portrait (1935)

The only official Dutch surrealist was born in Utrecht: the painter Johannes Moesman (1909-1988). He portrayed his sexual fantasies at a time when it was highly taboo, particularly in the Netherlands. But he wasn’t the only surrealist who tried to free himself from the confines of conformism by exploring this topic. This exhibition places Moesman’s work within the context of his international counterparts. In addition to Salvador Dalí, René Magritte and Max Ernst, for the first time, space has been allocated to female surrealists including Claude Cahun, Leonora Carrington and Leonor Fini.
