How to Begin Collecting Salvador Dali

What in the World is Surrealism?

There are millions of answers, but the correct one would be a creative reality driven by the dream world. And in art, one might imagine surrealism to be soft in some way, but the truth is, surrounding Salvador Dalí's surrealistic masterpieces you'll find exceedingly sharp edges.

Salvador Dali the Genius of Surrealism

Surrealism. Perhaps it's because of the imaginative concepts that so attract the young. And the sophistication of the era which appeals to the most jaded art collector. Even though the flying circus of surrealists sipped their absynthe in the 1920s their work feels absolutely fresh in the twenty first century. At the forefront of the movement, Salvador Dalí amuses himself among avant garde, artist and literary genius friends like Federico García Lorca, Luis Buñuel, Man Ray and Antonin Artaud. The most original thinkers of the twentieth century uttered the name Dalí in complete enchantment. Many still do.

Salvador Dali Bending Time

Almost anyone who has ever experienced a time meltdown has flashed on Salvador Dalí's famous melting clocks from his iconic painting, "Persistence of Memory " If you are very young, you may be new to Dalí and exclaiming "Crazy!" or "Sick!" at his images. If you've been around a while, you know that the extreme creativity of his work fronts artistic technical genius.

Au Courant: Return as we explore more about Salvador Dalí including his influence on the Dada Movement, Le Chien Andalou, and his whiskers.

Salvador Dalí, The Man Who Loved Woman

If you've ever felt disturbed by Picasso's discombobulated, dismembered women, may we present Salvador Dalí and his reverential depiction of the female form and most remarkably of the woman in his life. Whenever i think about Dalí's artistic voice, I hear him uttering, in love and need, the name, "Galá".

I think you're the only one, and not only are the others disinterested, I doubt himself is all that thrilled I put them up again... although... we are we again in the way the term 'we' ever meant for us which was somewhat haphazard and continually undefined. 

thought you might like to know.  I've been floating on clouds since New Year's Day. :o
