Part of the Wisconsin Surrealist movement in the 1930s and 40s, John Wilde was a Surrealist painter with focus on life and death through grotesque, doll-like people in "otherworldly situations".  Many of his paintings have old bones, mutated female creatures, and dream-like landscapes, and frequently he painted himself into his work.  He also did detailed, colorful and eerily glowing still lifes.

His association with Surrealism began when he was a student at the Univers (showing 500 of 4264 characters).
