Abstract
This thesis is an investigation of artistic groups in Poland active in the fifteen years following World War II. Particular attention is paid to modern and avant-garde artists who were aware of the art derived from the Surrealist movement as well as those who in various instances were in contact with the Surrealists. The research gathered here identifies the factors at play for the artistic production of these individuals: these include interwar artistic activity; the cultural policies of the Communist government after 1948; and the overall changing ideologies of artist practice in Europe. While a Surrealist group in Poland was never formed, traces of the movement’s impact on the visual arts can be found in the work of Polish artists and identified in the themes of organized exhibitions.
