    The most incredible thing with Dali is when you see his work up close, it’s a marvel of technique and skill, the colour and transitions. It’s just almost otherworldly.

    There was a retrospective of his work in MoMa some years back of his best work and I kid you not, I went there every day after work for 2 weeks.

    You see his work in all his glory and you somehow develop an attitude and other artists that used to seem okay are now not worthy of your time.

    I was reading a book about Dali and it stated he was very sexual. He had a theory that everyone’s anus was different, like a finger print and would make prints.

    Does anyone have an idea as to the messages/meaning in this painting?

    “Okay Ms. Flowers, your usual morning spritz, would you like anything else? A coffee perhaps?”

    When I was young we owned a Salvador Dali and it really messed with perspective. It fills you with sense of indescribable wonder. It’s so simple yet so complex.

    i was casually scrolling down and went really fast from “what the actual fuck” to “oh lol salvador dali”

    Can somebody try to explain what this painting portrays? Is there any sense to it?

    I loooove Dali. He was fascinating. Mixing classic art and creativity. Gorgeous.

    This looks like something from The Wall.

    If you guys like this, you should look at [Giorgio de Chirico](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giorgio_de_Chirico). He’s my favorite artist and does a ton of surrealist stuff with perspective and color.

    I love Dali. This is my favorite. I’ve owned this print for 15 years and I am still finding new things hidden within it. Absolutely amazing.

    Is it just me or does that look like Falkor the luck dragon in the back?

    Dude in the back is beside himself because they turned Falkor’s head into a planter.

    I wish Dali had lived longer of come along later. It would be interesting to see his take on a more modern world.

    It appears to me that though the woman in this painting is outwardly beautiful ,there is something inside her ( societal pressure ,internal dilemma ) whose ugly hands are grasping her like a vice .These hands are invisible to the world outside ,depicting a rosy picture of herself

    I like this-it’s beautiful! I don’t know a lot about art or art history. I just know what I like! All the Dali works I was familiar with (and like) have melting clocks or other melting objects in them (I thought timepieces were like his signature) and this work doesn’t have a single melting timepiece in it. This work in Dali’s body of work (known to me, anyway) is like a Van Gogh without all those swirly-sworly things in it… (I like Van Gogh’s works, too!)

    He was definitely unique. Not a fan of his, but he changed the perception of beauty and challanged the fabric of sanity.

    Does each intrinsic detail carry a deeper meaning or are they there purely for visual enjoyment?

    I think it really speaks to the distinctiveness of his style that when I saw the thumbnail for this post, without reading the title, and having not seeing this particular work before, I immediately thought “hey, is that a Dali?”

    This reminds me of the freaky courage the cowardly dog episode. You know the one.

    I love Salvador Dalis work. This piece reminds me of something I’d see in courage the cowardly dog.

    I have not once seen a piece of work by Dali that did not make me intensely uncomfortable, to the point of not being able to look at it for too long.

    Dali also had lots of amazing work in photography, but I think my favorite of his works is a sculpture entitled “Lobster Telephone”.
    Look it up – all I can say is I saw it the first time and was immediately entranced by its beauty and the obvious nature of it.

    and if I am not mistaken. I love the fact that he and Walt Disney were great friends.

    Was lucky enough to stumble across an epic exhibition tour in Europe in 2014 while on a hen do in Prague… Freaking amazing to see. The lobster phone was in the tate while I was doing art way back when… My fave artist by miles

    I love Dali’s surrealist work, also his cubist pieces when he was younger. Super fucking skilled

    If this was 1935, tell me why the left woman is talking on a cellphone.

    Don’t know why but his paintings are just so soul sucking that it takes my breath away.

    It might not be very important but it’s Salvador Dalí, not Dali.

    I absolutely love Dali’s work. I feel like it will always stand the test of time. In fact, it will _always_ be ahead of its time. His work is just breathtaking.

    Salvador Dali creeps me out. His work always makes me feel a little sick.

    The first time I saw a Dali painting was when I was 22, and tripping on genuine LSD. Apparently I was convinced I had to eat the painting to regain my soul.

    Love how I thought that this looks like Salvador Dali before reading the description

    Dali must have been trying to bring someone back using alchemy. This is clearly a failed homunculus.

    Personal expression is not art. This is arguably the start of meaningless modern art.
