An updated take on his own most famous painting, Salvador Dali’s 1954 work “The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory” is a mid-century statement on nuclear weapons. This symbolic Surrealist work breaks down the images of the earlier work to represent the psychological effect that nuclear energy’s destruction has on humanity in the aftermath of an atomic bomb. Strongly influenced by Sigmund Freud’s psychological theories, Dali (1904 – 1989) believed that logic had failed humanity, and turned to dreams and the subconscious to transcend the limitations of reason.
Spanish artist Salvador Dali was a groundbreaking icon of the Surrealist movement and one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. His work probed the unconscious world of thoughts, dreams and perception in fanciful and nightmarish images influenced by Freud, Cubism, Futurism and metaphysical art. Extraordinarily imaginative, Dali also sculpted, and contributed to fashion, photography and theater. Nearly photographic, Dali’s art has been called the epitome of Surrealism.
