Dali

The Persistence of Time by Salvador Dali


I'm not sure whether you will like today's artist – Salvador Dali – I'm not even sure I do!

The pic above is The Persistence of Memory

Dali was a Surrealist – which means he painted unreal things as if they were real.  He called them "hand-painted dream photographs".  He sure had funny dreams then!  As in funny peculiar not funny haha.

Seated Girl Seen from the Rear by Salvador Dali


I do like this painting – Seated Girl Seen From the Rear.  He was only 21 when he painted it and it is a portrait of his sister.

 Dali was Spanish.  He was born in 1904 and died in 1989.

It is a shame that his works turned to the completely bizarre later in life.

  2. I really can't say if I like the first or not - it's so famous it's one of those paintings that I've known of for so long... I suppose I like the idea and symbolism but I'm not sure about the painting itself. The last requires the word you used, bizarre!
