  1. Sketchbook HW- SURREAL Hand Study

  2. Project Goal • Create a drawing composition of a realistic hand rendered in grayscale with drawing pencils. There must be a creative or surreal component to the artwork. Your composition must include as much of one hand as possible.

  3. What is Surrealism? • It is a 20th-century avant-garde movement in art and literature that features the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions, and non sequitur (subject matter defies logic). • Artists create scenarios that aren’t realistic, or are exaggerated in some way

  4. Famous Surrealists • Hieronymus Bosch • 15th century Dutch painter • Known as the “Pre-Surrealism Surrealist,” 400 years before the movement started! • Used fantastic imagery to illustrate moral and religious concepts and narratives The Garden of Earthly Delights, c.1500

  5. Famous Surrealists • Hieronymus Bosch • The vivid imagery and bizarre creatures in this paintings brought about theories of heresy or witchcraft. Current evidence indicates that he used abstract symbolism to depict the temptation of evils of man rather than the occult.  Close-up Detail of The Garden of Earthly Delights, c.1500
