. Max Ernst (1891 - 1976) Max Ernst Showing a Young Girl the Head of his Father, 1926 or 1927 (Max Ernst montrant à une jeune fille la tête de son père) Oil on canvas Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art Edinburgh . There's a pretty cool story behind this work and how it came to its final resting place at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.  First of all, this fantastic museum is lucky enough to have 11 painting and collages by Ernst, one of the leaders on both the Dada and Surrealism movements.  They also have numerous prints, drawings and illustrated books.  I want to live there. . Has anyone heard the term "frottage?" It's can be used in an artistic or a sexual way.  Here, I'll stick to the artistic form of frottage wherein the artist rubs the uneven surface of work to achieve a particular textural “desire.” (You can probably guess what sexual frottage is!). In this work, Ernst went a step further by utilizing "grattage," a technique that goes a step further beyond frottage.  With grattage, the artist actually scratches or scrapes the surface of the work to achieve a different effect.  This is what Ernst did with this particular painting. . In this rather large work (45" x 57.75"), Ernst took the painted canvas, laid rough wooden boards over the work and scraped to produce a grainy rough surface texture.  Ernst discovered this technique accidentally when drawing over floorboards in a hotel room.  The Surrealist embraced this unique technique! . So how did this work come to it's new home? According to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, "Accepted by HMM Government in lieu of Inheritance Tax on the Estate of Gabrielle Keller and allocated to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in 1998." Bummer for Ms. Keller. . . #ernst #maxernst #maxernstshowingayounggirltheheadofhisfather #maxernstmontrantàunejeunefillelatêtedesonpère #1926 #1927 #oiloncanvas #scottishnationalgalleryofmodernart #frottage #grattage #texture #surfacetexture #painter #sculptor #poet #graphicartist #dada #surrealist #surrealism #cubism #expressionism #naiveart #decalcomania #jeanmiró #hansarp  #abstractexpressionism #modernart #modernism #contemporaryart
