In an experiment to determine whether or not surreal art can be produced by someone without any artistic merit or skill, over the coming six weeks I will be featuring art from the British Surrealism in Context Exhibition. Five of the works featured will be genuine reproductions taken from the exhibition catalogue. The sixth work of art will have been produced by someone without any artistic ability or experience (me) on my kitchen table in less than an hour. Your task is to spot the surreal fraud. You can comment as we progress through the six works or wait until the end to give your verdict.
No 1. Vorticist Composition
In this composition the artist uses the shape of two picture easels to mimic human positions and produces a clear indication of a man striding out of the painting.
