Surrealism - Inspiration

I'm not going to say much here; for those of you interested in Surrealism - take a look at these wonderful and inspirational paintings. The first image is by Paul Delvaux - The Crucifixion (1952). The middle paintings are by Dorothea Tanning, The Birthday (1942). The second image by Dorothea Tanning is Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (1943). The fourth painting is by Leonora Carrington, The Inn of the Dawn Horse - Self Portrait (1936/7).

The Carrington reminds me of the poem "Shock Headed Peter" by Heinrich Hoffmann in one of my 'I'm going to read this even if it's a bit scary' books I had as a child.
