Description of the painting by Salvador Dali "Circus"


Salvador Dali is a rather ambiguous personality, this is manifested with might and main both in his life and in almost all of his paintings, as a surrealist artist.

Many of his paintings are filled with some kind of secret, mystical, one can even say somewhat sacred meaning, which sometimes can not be understood, even by the most notorious art critics.

Our attention gets a picture of Dali, which is called the Circus. Quite an interesting picture, I want to outline several interesting nuances on it. If you look closely, this circus is like an exact copy of some kind of human society.

There are all sorts of status and position of the beauty, with equally bright cheeks, apparently from cosmetics. There are also those here who are not captivated by general joy, because this is just a screen, smile when everyone does it, simply because it is a circus. If we turn to the left edge of the picture, we notice one person standing with her back to the whole action, and as if watching me.

By the way, there is another interesting point, in the lower right corner, Salvador Dali painted himself, also looking, as it were, from the picture directly at you, although it is not entirely clear where they are looking. A large crowd of people, hype. So what did the author try to convey to us?

The bustle of a rampant day, or the ease with which people go to the circus, look at people and show themselves. Almost in the center of the picture, there are large images of the king and queen. Maybe this circus, this is such a mini-model of their society in those days, everyone, have fun and amuse their king.

No one thinks about tomorrow and spends their money, and only a few can turn their backs on all this and show their indifference, to brainwash the common people with the tricks of the royal family. The painting is made mainly in three colors, so to speak in circus: red, yellow and blue.
