Dali Magritte | Surrealism Art of Dreams


Salvador Dali was a leading figure in the Surrealist art movement from the early 20th century. Known for his improbable combinations, he tried to reveal images and symbolism from his dream state in his paintings. For example, Dali depicted an elephant with legs as thin as toothpicks in Temptation of Saint Anthony or a clock melting on a barren tree from the Persistence of Memory.

Parastone of the Netherlands adapted Salvador Dali’s surrealism paintings into remarkable statues in 3D. Parastone has imagined the back side of the statues continuing Dali’s vision. See some examples of their statues and original paintings below.

Elephant From The Temptation Of Saint Anthony (1946) by Salvador Dali
from The Temptation Of Saint Anthony (1946). After the Second World War, Dali converted, by his own account, to mysticism. The beginning of the Atomic Era strongly influenced his thinking and led to a strong spiritual foundation for his paintings which he made with a great appreciation for the classic art of painting. The temptation of Saint Anthony originated from an entry for a film poster competition. It shows Dali’s nuclear mysticism in all its fierceness.


Soft Self-portrait With Fried Bacon (1941) by Salvador Dali
from Soft Self-portrait With Fried Bacon (1941). Dali painted this self-portrait during his eight-year-exile in the United States, where he had fled from the Spanish civil war. The, sometimes, childlike enthusiasm and the drive of the American society appealed to Dali and he had a most productive period there. Under this influence he appeared to reverse his “paranoid-critical” method. Now he painted more from the inside out, as his comment on his self-portrait indicates.


Burning Giraffe (1936-1937) by Salvador Dali
from Burning Giraffe (1936-1937). “The only difference between immortal Greece and our era is Sigmund Freud who discovered that the human body, which in Greek times was merely neoplatonical, is now filled with secret drawers only to be opened through psychoanalysis.” The opened drawers in this expressive, propped up female figure thus refer to the inner, subconscious within man. In DaliÕs own words his paintings form “a kind of allegory which serves to illustrate a certain insight, to follow the numerous narcissistic smells which ascend from each of our drawers.”

Bowler Man with Green Apple by Magritte, surrealism art of the imagination

Rene Magritte was another leading member of Surrealism. This Belgian Surrealist had more comical, lighthearted approach in his art often illustrating blue skies with puffy clouds, humorous phrases like “Ce n’est pas une pipe” in a painting with of a pipe, and a Bowler Hat Man with Apple.
