About This Item

artdaliThe Persistence of Memory

I have already released series of art-themed travel bugs based on works I have seen in person.  I will continue the series mostly including works I simply admire.  There will also be famous works or works by famous artists that I otherwise do not particularly care for, but they are….well,..famous.  My disdain extends to most Modern Art and a good amount from the Pop Art movement. 

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marqués de Dalí de Pubol (1904 –1989), known as Salvador Dalí was a prominent Spanish surrealist painter.  Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work.  His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in 1931.  Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.

Dalí attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes" to an "Arab lineage," claiming that his ancestors were descended from the Moors.  Dalí was highly imaginative, and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior. His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork, to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem, and to the irritation of his critics.

Dalí was born in the town of Figueres, in the Empordà region, close to the French border in Catalonia, Spain.   Dalí's older brother, who had also been named Salvador (born 1901), had died in 1903.   His father, Salvador Dalí i Cusí, was a middle-class lawyer and notary whose strict disciplinary approach to child-rearing was tempered by his wife, Felipa Domenech Ferrés, who encouraged her son's artistic endeavors.

When he was five, Dalí was taken to his brother's grave and told by his parents that he was his brother's reincarnation, a concept which he came to believe.  Of his brother, Dalí said, "...[we] resembled each other like two drops of water, but we had different reflections."  He "was probably a first version of myself but conceived too much in the absolute."  Images of his long-dead brother would reappear embedded in his later works, including Portrait of  My Dead Brother (1963).
