    Magritte and Salvador Dali are some good famous ones. Magritte did Time Transfixed, the painting with the train coming through the wall, and he did some cool sculptures where weird things are happening. Dali painted the painting with the melting clocks. They would probably be your most famous painters for surrealism.
