Beautiful and Interesting
Guess what...I had to have a look at Max Ernst's work to see what it was all about. I will admit that I am not a Dada/surrealist expert...other than knowing about one of my favorite artists the surrealist Hannah Hoch.
So...I found the advertisement for The Metropolitan Magazine in a March 1900 issue of Vanity Fair (that I paid $30 for! -- time to cut it up I guess). The x-ray hand came from an old science book. The arrow asking you to "BE SURE TO USE THIS RECIPE" is from a 1930s magazine ad.
