THANK YOU for VISITING R.S.Beal Surrealism 2005
R.S. Beal 'Untitled' Oil 1991
R.S.Beal's work is often based on the original tenets of Andre Breton (1896-1966), Surrealist Manifesto inaugurated late in 1924 by the critic and poet Andre Breton and is an appeal for the emancipation of the imaginative life from the arbitrary limitations imposed upon it by reason, local newspaper's, arbitrary moralities and the social order. - from Dadism and Surrealism / Pelican History of Art
