Atavistic Ruins after the Rain represent a development of the scene in The Architectonic Angelus of Millet, in which the human figures have been metamorphosed into menhirs or sculptures. Actually they most closely resemble the sculptures of Dali's contemporaries, Hans Arp and Henry Moore, but Dali's treatment of them suggests that they are age-old rock formations.

 

Dali's own writings indicate that the 'remains' in this canvas are the result of erosion, but also of sexual conflict. The 'female' stone, which now dominates the picture, has devoured the male, in the process acquiring his characteristic void; all that remains of him is part of the display-like base of the object on The Architectonic Angelus of Millet. The figures viewing the 'remains' represent the infant Dali and his father, allied against the female sexuality of which Dali had such a horror.

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.
