A marvellous insect. A drawing board. What do forests do? They never go to bed early. They wait for the woodcutter. When do good times come for forests? In the future: The season when pools of shadow are transformed into words, when beings with the power of speech are proud enough to seek for midnight at any time. ... And man, what position did he occupy? Man and the nightingale were in the best position to fantasise: in the forest, they found an ideal guide for their dreams" (Max Ernst, quoted in 'Mysteries of the Forest' in Minotaure, Paris, 12 May 1934). Nu allongé et personnage shows Ernst using rich texture and strong vibrant colours to enhance the subject matter of his work. Colourful creatures that inhabit forest-like landscapes are used by Ernst as visual metaphors for the feelings of delight and oppression the artist associated with nature. With the use of dramatic perspective, imaginary symbols and a dreamlike atmosphere, the artist strives to portray the mystical relationship between one's inner vision and the outer world, whilst capturing the complicated nature of human relations.

This phase of Ernst’’’’s œuvre was dominated by the techniques of grattage, beautifully explored in the present work, as well as the more recently devised decalcomania, invented by Oscar Domínguez in 1935. The use of both techniques enabled Ernst to achieve rich patterns reminiscent of corals, rocks, forests and imaginary creatures, which dominated his art at the time. In the present work, the grattage technique – scraping the paint off the surface – has resulted in a web-like background denoted as wood by the title of the painting, with black brush-strokes delineating several highly abstract figures seen against this otherworldly setting.

Max Ernst (1891–1976) The German painter, graphic artist and sculptor Max Ernst studied philosophy, psychology and art history at the University of Bonn. As part of his studies, he worked on the art of mentally ill and often visited museums as a sideline. Only through friendship with August Macke and his encouragement Ernst decided in 1912 to devote himself autodidactic entirely to painting. With Johnannes Baargeld and Hans Arp he co-founded the DADA Group in 1919. In 1922 he moved to Paris, where he joined the Surrealist circle and became one of its most important members. During the Second World War, he fled in 1941 into exile in America. In 1953 Max Ernst went back to France and became a French citizen. Max Ernst is known for his surreal, fantastic images with enigmatic beings.
