Works of art have been appreciated since ancient times as they compliment the skills, talent and expertise of the painter. These pieces may indicate a certain era in history, the country’s heritage and appreciation of various members of the community, especially leaders or heroes. During the twentieth century, a major change revolutionized the art industry through a change in the art language by an artist known as Dali. He was a well-known painter, bearing a unique mustache, known for advocating for a better taste in art. Dali had a robust personality which, at a point, led him to be expelled from an art school for saying he was too knowledgeable. Salvador later incited students to protest about a professor by claiming he had poor art taste and later moved to Paris in 1929 to face a surrealist art group.
Dali was seen by the Surrealist art movement as a painter with a wild vision as well as an extreme erotic nature towards women themed in the paintings. His determination to change art landed him being the leader of the Surrealist movement. The factor that accelerated Salvador’s fame to power in surrealism was a bold personality by engaging himself in the creation of sculptures, drawings, designs, fashion and movies as he later incorporated politics into art. Most of the works of art done by Dali had objects that have been deformed or juxtaposed, illustrating the advancement of technology and its capacity in the twentieth century. Such images in current society can be described to be in high definition and in proper proportion. These effects are what could be related to Salvador’s drawings.
The painter’s well-known art pieces, though fame, was uplifted through “The Great Masturbator”, inspiration taken from his beautiful wife, Gala. It entails a picture of a lady fractured on the forehead, bearing a calm reaction despite the fracture she has. Such details were also implemented in his other art, “The Spectre of Sex Appeal”, where a child observes a tortured woman struggling to keep support using walking sticks. Most of the art was made on the same analogy but with different themes in mind. The most well-known piece of art in Dali’s collection was “The Persistence of Memory” which featured molten pocket watches and a rugged topography indicating how time is flexible.
Salvador is said to have gathered most of his art’s inspiration from the dreams together with regular visions Dali had. From about nineteen fifty to about nineteen seventy, Dali’s art was primarily religious in nature, with erotic themes thrown in to showcase Dali’s childhood memories and admiration for Gala. He sometimes expressed emotions like beliefs as well as his sexual desires in the art piece “The Great masturbator”. Dali also had a deep appreciation of food, which is expected since he came from a Catalan background and lived on the Ampurdán Plain. Paintings being used to communicate the painter’s mental thoughts as well as their social lives is what Dali had in mind, which makes that goal achievable for all artists and painters up to date.
