THE MASTER OF SURREALISM

THE ECCENTRIC ARTIST

Salvador Dalí grew up in northern Spain in the early 20th century and studied art in Madrid as a youth. As early as the 1920s, he began to approach surrealism as an artistic expression and soon became the movement's most prominent talent and face, thanks in large part to his obvious aptitude for marketing himself in the new TV era. In 1940, Dalí moved to the United States where he began to experience commercial success. In addition to his artistic skills and innovative ideas, he became known from an early age for his distinctive style of clothing and eccentric personality. His works of art, which in addition to painting and sculpture also include film, photography, design and graphic art, have become some of the most monumental creations in art history.

"Do not fear perfection, you will never achieve it"

- Salvador Dalí

THE ARTIST'S OBSESSION

THE FLYING TIME

Salvador Dalí - "Dance of Time III"
Bronze, Height 26.5 cm, Edition 265/350

The melting clock is Dalí's most recognizable signature and has become an absolute icon of modern art. He returned to the image repeatedly during his lifetime and as an artist has become almost synonymous with the mysterious symbol. He himself was obsessed with the concept of time. The clock illustrates an important theme in Dalí's world; the contrast between hard and soft, which became a central preoccupation throughout his life. It also points out that time, a seemingly stable rhythm, can be experienced as fluid.

"An artist is not one who is inspired, but one who can inspire others"

- Salvador Dalí

A DELICATE PROCESS

MASTERPIECE IN BRONZE

Salvador Dalí - "The Anthropomorphic Cabinet (Medium)"
Bronze, Height 32 cm, Edition 257/330

The creation of a bronze sculpture is an intricate but rewarding process. It can take several weeks of careful collaboration between the artist and the foundry before the sculpture is completed. Bronze sculptures are usually produced via a delicate process known as "lost wax" or "Cire Perdue". This prestigious method has its roots in ancient antiquity and can be dated as early as 5,000 years before Christ. The meticulous technique is still used today to create important and high-quality sculptural art with long-term value and artistic perfection.
