Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was one of our greatest modern artists and an icon of surrealism. Dalí's fantastic expression in paintings, sculptures, films and writings helped to cement the identity of Surrealism. Drawing inspiration from Freud's psychoanalysis, Einstein's theory of relativity, impressionism and Renaissance painting, Dalí rendered symbolist, fantastical creatures and landscapes. Few artists have had such a peculiar universe as Salvador Dalí, where an imaginative mix of madness executed with technical perfection and precision reigns. His painting "The Persistence of Memory" from 1931 is one of the most famous works of art of all time. Dalí lived as he created - in constant movement, in search of immortality.
The dancing Carmen with the castanets in full swing is depicted by Dalí in the middle of a lively leap. The dress wraps around the bare legs in an image of the playfulness, joy and intense passion that music can bestow. But under the tuft of hair, there's a gaping void where a face should be. The happy dancer is an indeterminable illusion. A figure from the dream that can take on the identity of whoever you want it to be. Our imagination completes the sculpture in a different guise with each viewing. Who is she really and how does she affect those she meets?
