Early Surrealist work First works in Cubism 1920’s interested in Surrealism and AUTOMATIC  PAINTING Masson would often force himself to work under strict conditions, for example, after long periods of time without food or sleep, or under the influence of drugs. He believed forcing himself into a reduced state of consciousness would help his art be free from rational control, and hence get closer to the workings of his subconscious mind.
