Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism was an exhibition at New York's Museum of Modern Art curated by Alfred H. Barr, Jr. founding Director of The Museum of Modern Art. It ran from December 7, 1936 until January 17, 1937. The catalog was written by Alfred Barr and Georges Hugnet.

In the so-called fantastic art category, works such as The Titan's Goblet by Thomas Cole were included. The catalogue included many more of these paintings, which were not in display.

Of note among the new work was Le Déjeuner en fourrure.
