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 image of human bodies with chests of drawers being opened is found repeatedly in Dalí's artistic work. It is clearly influenced by Dalí's immense fascination with Sigmund Freud's theories. The boxes that are pulled out of the body of the person in the image can symbolize memories and the subconscious in the person and also express the mysterious with hidden secrets and desires that we carry within us. The work contains one of Dalí's most monumental images and has come to both inspire, enthrall and amaze with its subtle symbols of the unconscious.
