Aquis Submersus is an oil painting produced in 1919 by German painter Max Ernst.
In the foreground of this painting, was a statue with no arms, the figure appears to be made up of clay material. Its shadow was leaving in the direction of the pool similar to a nearby shadow on the lower left hand side of the painting. The figure was looking away from the buildings and the pool and it bears a mustache which was similar to Max Ernst’s father but many features of the figure could be interpreted as a woman.
This painting canvas was small and when Max Ernest painted on this, he was at the threshold of surrealist art. As, this painting was reacting to the unrealistic or magical world which does not exist. The surrealist form in this painting was that it rejected the stringent logic. As the reflection of the clock hanging on the sky was moon onto the water. The dimensions of the painting Aquis Submersus were 54 cm × 43.8 cm or 21.26 in × 17.24 in.
