布列塔尼在1941年搬到美国，并在纽约加入了许多其他抽象艺术家。他对艺术家如罗伯特·怀特韦尔（Robert Motherwell）（1915-91年），杰克逊·波洛克（Jackson Pollock）（1912-56）等等的影响力也不断增长。他的写作也给波普艺术带来了很大的影响。超现实主义运动的领导人安德烈是毕加索的崇拜者，并认为他是第一位超现实主义者（区分超现实主义者和超现实主义艺术家后来成为重要意义）。布列塔尼看到毕加索的绘画是一个梦幻般的概念，他认为毕加索是超现实主义者，将梦想世界与现实世界相结合。
超现实主义是通过自动写作开始的，这意味着是对自己的精神分析和自由联系。这也意味着无论如何，只要没有任何形式的意识和编辑，就能写出这样的想法。安德烈·布列多顿（Andre Breton）在1922年与菲利普·索波（Philippe Soupault）一起使用自动写入技术写了磁场。所有写在自动写作中的词都是灵魂而不是心灵，没有干扰无意识的意图。
Andre Breton was an influential part of French paintings and was the former member of Dada in Paris. He was a poet, a critic and a great writer. He is considered the leading theorists or the “Pop of Surrealism”. He was the part of it since 1924 until his death in 1966.He was the one who wrote “Manifesto of Surrealism (1924)” and dedicated it to his friend Apollinaire, who had been credited for creating the name “Surrealism” in the year 1917. Breton has worked as the creative backbone of the movement and the two main journals of the movement namely “The Surrealist Revolution” (1924-9) and “Surrealism at the service of the Revolution” (1930-33).
Breton moved to America in 1941 and joined many other abstract artists in New York. He became a prominent influence on the artists such as Robert Motherwell (1915-91), on Jackson Pollock (1912-56), and many more. His writing were also gave a great influence on Pop Art. Andre the leader of the Surrealist movement was the great admirer of Picasso and considered him as the very first Surreal Artist (distinguishing between Surrealists and Surrealist artists would later become a point of significance). Breton saw the painting of Picasso as the dreamlike conceptual, he considered Picasso to be the Surrealist, who had combined the world of dreams with the real world.
Surrealism in Writing and Literature
Surrealism was initiated through automatic writing, which meant to be the psychoanalysis and free connection with oneself. This also meant that whatever comes to mind is written that way only without any kind of consciousness and editing. Andre Breton wrote The Magnetic Fields in 1922 with Philippe Soupault using the technique of automatic writing. All the words that were written in automatic writing were those that came out of soul instead of mind and had no interference in unconscious intentions.
