The Entire City (La ville entière)

Max Ernst, 1935-1936

In his magnificent painting Max Ernst shows us a mysterious landscape laid out on several levels... combines extreme close-up with distant views, but also different layers of time. The city calls to mind antique ruins and the ancient temples built by lost civilizations. Perhaps the artist is also conjuring a vision of the future. Whatever the case, this is a city of the imagination and an architecture found in the realm of dreams. http://www.fondationbeyeler.ch/en/exhibitions/max-ernst/works
