The Salvador Dalí Festival in Moscow is a bright and spectacular event
In the 20 years of the last century in Franceformed a new direction in the visual arts - surrealism. Its main essence was the departure from naturalism. The transfer of the essence of man and the surrounding world was not realized through logical images, but through paradoxes and illusions. The confusion of visions, the hidden meaning, parallel worlds, the transmission of their vision of the world through the lens of forgetfulness filled the space of art paintings. Cognition was carried out not according to the laws of physics, but at the level of intuition.

Dali believed that surrealism is the most truthful genre, because in a state of semi-consciousness, the mind is freed from social taboos and is able to manifest its truth.
