Iroquois Landscape- Andre Masson
I found this piece of artwork, Iroquois Landscape in Chapter 12 titled "Surrealism: The Resolution of Dream and Reality". I stopped upon this page because of the deep color with spurts of fluroscent color. The artist of the work is Andre Masson. He developed automatism which was an abstract calligraphy rhyth of lines and strokes. He tended to add violence and drama into his work. Iroquosis was created in 1943, oil on canvas. Many pieces of his artwork reflected aniamal violence, passion, destiny, and symbolic unity of all things.
