Salvador Dalí - The Persistence of Memory

Regular price £12.95
Colour

The Persistence of Memory is Salvador Dalí's most famous painting. The work shows three dissolving pocket watches arranged in the Catalan landscape in front of the rugged cliffs of Cap de Creus. A fly sits on one watch, symbolising the passage of time. Another is being eaten by ants, symbolic of transience and decay. In the middle of the painting, a clock is running away on an abstract face of the artist depicted in profile, who has his eyes closed.

Dream Caused by a Bee Flying Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Waking Up was painted in 1944 while Dalí and his wife Gala were living in America. It is an oil painting on wood, a 'hand-painted dream photo', as Dalí generally called his paintings.
