Description of the painting by Salvador Dali "Persistence of memory"


This painting, painted by the great Spanish artist, representative of surrealism, Salvador Dali. Almost all of his works are distinguished by a unique unique style and incredible subtext, which carries a certain meaning and significance.

“Persistence of memory” is one of the most famous paintings of the great artist, which has several variants of the name. So, in addition to the usual name, there are “Soft watches”, “Memory resistance”, “Memory hardness” and some other names.

This picture is a kind of symbol of the transience and relativity of temporary space. Paradoxical as it may seem, the artist came up with the idea of ​​writing this picture when he reflected on cream cheese. Here it is, Salvador Dali ...

The picture is a relatively calm landscape, against the serene background of which the clock slowly melts and spreads. The landscape itself is a kind of reflection of the internal state of the artist. Most people think that time is a kind of straight line that has a beginning and an end. But, according to the great artist, time tends to change and stretch, and it was most accurately possible to depict it in the form of “soft” watches.

Most often, Salvador Dali left notes in his diaries about his paintings, but not a word was found about the meaning and meaning of the “soft watch”. Probably therefore, there are several theories of what the author wanted to say with this picture. There is even a very paradoxical version that with this work Dali expressed his own fear of male impotence - saggy, shapeless watches or forms. Be that as it may, now it is a well-known work of the surreal genre.

Currently, the surrealistic painting "The Persistence of Memory" is in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
