MAX ERNST -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
This time we take everything: Canvas, stretchers, paint, and the totem pole, the kachina dolls, the pictures.
We want to return to Sedona, Arizona, where we'd already spent a summer. But this landscape is not one to be forgotten after one summer. This time we want to stay and build a house.
MAX ERNST: So we decided to move to a part of the country which I had already seen during the course of our travels. Arizona.
There I found the old, familiar landscape that had continually been in my mind's eye, and which had repeatedly appeared in my paintings, too.
Now I don't pretend that this was a result of some cheap, prophetic gift of mine.
It was sheer accident that the landscape was there, and that my pictures were there, and had emerged at a point in time before I had ever seen the landscape.
