Type Face

font suggestions for art project


I'm hoping to get some suggestions for type faces corresponding to the art movements of surrealism and abstract expressionism. This is to be a web-based project, so faces available in webfont form would be ideal and I'm looking to find practical options suitable for display and body text. Thus, I'm not looking for anything too over-the-top (specifically with respect to surrealism) but more from the standpoint of type faces that fit the periods-- i.e. early 20s-30s for surrealism and 40s-60s for abstract expressionism-- and contain subtle character, indicating sensitivity to the style/ethos of the artwork, along with strong readability.
