Jimmy Ernst is a very good artist, long dead; so you can only pay tribute to him by watching the images below for a while and commenting on them. artnet's Artist Works Catalogues does not encourage (or have the software for) comments on its images.

Simply click on an individual artist's image to begin, and check back often to browse new catalogues."
