The French surrealism (whose engine was André Breton), Isabel watching them all such as with your friend Triston Tzara, but without leaving the Portuguese surrealist movement, living in friendship with António Pedro, O'Neill, Cesariny, Cruzeiro Seixas, among others, and also with Eugénio de Andrade and Natália Correia, as having published several books.

By way of tribute, as it has recently died, Daniel Hanequand, is also one of the leading names in international surrealism of 20th and 21st centuries. Born in Paris in 1938, but still young, he moved to Canada. Julie Oakes said in 2007: Daniel Hanequand threw out the old and created a new sociology with the arrogance of a true revolutionary French. He was released from the forms "boring" and established and invented a different race of humanoid and then put the relations of these beings, in a context with its own creation.
Otto Rapp is an Austrian artist, surrealist with his "Art of the mystic" and develops the project Visionary Art Gallery.
