With the rediscovery of lost films by Georges Méliès, one of the main creators of the cinema along with the Lumière brothers, studies have gone into the role of the artist not only in the cinema but also his contribution to the evolution of art in general. Only recently has the contribution of Georges Méliès come to light in starting and developing surrealism. His films which draw to a great extent on the heritage of the art of the second half of the 19th century and particularly symbolism, historical painting, and the fin-de-siècle art, have in turn stimulated later artists.
