Europe After The Rain II by Max Ernst

Max Ernst’s Europe After the Rain II is an abstracted landscape that offers an apocalyptic vision of the post-war world, painted in 1941, shortly after he escaped from France since he was considered an “undesirable foreigner.”
For this, Ernst used a collage technique called decalcomania, in which gouache is pressed onto a canvas using paper, which produced a multilayered effect.
