To show how, despite these discrepancies, most of the artists associated with Surrealism also worked in other media, the exhibition presents, together with paintings by artists like René Magritte, Max Ernst, Salvador Dalí and Yves Tanguy, some objects that have become genuine icons of the movement: from Dalí’s Mae West Lips Sofa (1938) to his Lobster Telephone (Téléphone-Homard, 1938), not forgetting the creations of inspired fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, including her Tear o Skeleton dresses (both from 1938), or Meret Oppenheim’s recently discovered Table with Bird’s Legs (Tisch mit Vogelfüssen, from 1939).
