It began as the GODFATHER OF MATH, evolved into the GOODFATHER OF MATH. Now this. Go figure...

In All Ernstness: Max And Jimmy...(JE #1)

________________________________________________________________________________________________


"If twenty people were to receive royalties
 every time the word surreal was spoken,
 Max Ernst  would be one of them,"

  said the BIRD HEAD.  ⟿














Five days ago, there was 
an Obligation for those of us
with Pope Francis in our blood.

Born in 1891,  Max Ernst was a German Catholic.



That holy day of December 
Obligation is known as
THE IMMACULATE  
CONCEPTION.

That is also the name 
of this Ernst piece ➜

In 1918, Max married
Luise Strauss.

In 1920, she gave birth
to  Hans-Ulrich Ernst
who was born in
the same city
as his father:
Cologne.


This  ROCKING HORSE
may or may not have been
a gift from Father to Son.


That is, a gift from
the Ernst known
as Max to the
Ernst who 
became
Jimmy.






And the Ernst who became Jimmy 
was also an artist.

He may or may not have been a Surrealist.

You be the judge...

(1920-1984)

  1. It's surreal if realistic things
    are portrayed as wacky fun guys

  2. "wacky fun guys"
    YES...
    but true surrealism
    comes with a special
    conscious/unscious twist

    2. Unscious is when
      someone has taken a bite
      out of your Unconscious Thoughts.
