Surrealism is an art form that started in the 1920’s. Some of it’s artists are still popular: Salvador Dali and Joan Miro are still almost household names. Art lovers certainly will have heard of them and have seen (reproductions of) their work. Tribute to their popularity are the art calendars made yearly that reproduce some of their fascinating pieces.
Painter, sculptor, writer and film maker, Salvador Dali (1904 – 1989) was one of the century’s greatest exhibitionists and eccentrics and was rewarded with fierce controversy wherever he went. He was one of the first to apply the insights of Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis to the art of painting. Dali brought extraordinary sensitivity, imagination and concern for precision to bear upon submerged levels of consciousness.
The calendar features 52 surreal paintings plus plenty of space for all of your notes and appointments. Also includes year planners plus all national holidays. Spiral-bound, it opens flat.
Escher’s subtle, humorous explorations of the visually plausible but physically impossible made—and keep—him famous. There are also Escher Calendars that you might enjoy hanging on your office wall.

Kahlo Softcover Engagement Calendar
Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954) was one of the most important 20th century painters, and one of the few Latin American artists to have achieved a reputation on a Global scale. Kahlo used her mainly small format self-portraits to express the burdens that weighed upon her soul – she suffered unbearable physical pain, grief from Rivera’s occasional affairs, sorrow that she was childless, homesickness while living abroad and a longing to feel that she had put down roots, as well as a profound loneliness.
But Kahlo’s paintings also declare her passionate love for her husband, her own striking sensuousness, and her unwavering survival instinct.
This Planner features a new picture every week, every week a new page.
