Camille Saint-Saëns - Dance Macabre
The symphonic poem of Saint-Saëns, combined here with an homage to Max Ernst and surrealism. Victoriana collages by Max Ernst (mostly from the graphic novel ‘Une semaine de bonté’ of 1933)
The 184 collages of Une semaine de bonté [A Week of Kindness] were created during the summer of 1933 while Max Ernst was staying at Vigoleno, in northern Italy. The artist took his inspiration from wood engravings, published in popular illustrated novels, natural science journals or 19th century sales catalogues.
