Salvador Dalí Paintings

The Spanish painter Salvador Dali remains one of the most controversial and paradoxical artists of the twentieth century. Over last few decades, Salvador Dali has gradually come to be seen, alongside the likes of Picasso and Matisse, as a prodigious figure whose life and work occupies a central and unique position in the history of modern art.


Dali has also come to be regarded not only as its most well-known exponent but also, to many people, as an individual artist synonymous with Surrealism itself. In addition, Dali was a great artist who was a great self-publicist and showman. The combination was an irresistible formula for success.

About Rhinocerotic Figure of Phidias's Illisos, 1954 by Salvador Dali
This comes from what Dali described as his 'almost divine and chaste rhinoceros-horn period', when he claimed that the curve of the beast's horn was the only perfect logarithmic spiral and consequendy the ultimate in formal perfection. With characteristic Daliesque logic - or critical paranoia - this insight came to him while he was copying a canvas that had obsessed him for decades: Vermeer's cool, lovely, lightfilled portrait of a lacemaker.   In the mid-1950s Dali even made a film called The Prodigious Story of the Lacemaker and the Rhinoceros, starring himself, a reproduction of the Johannes Vermeer, and a live, if carefully fenced-off, rhino. Here a torso from the Parthenon by the most famous of ancient Greek sculptors, Phidias, is fragmenting into a rhino head and horn-shapes which hang above a typical Dali seascape, which is in turn suspended over the sea-bed.
