Description of the painting by Salvador Dali “Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory”


The eccentric Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali, with his unique paintings, gave rise to many myths and unsolved mysteries.

Surrealism as a genre found its full embodiment thanks to the gift of Dali. Many of his creations are now on display in the Florida Museum, dedicated to the memory of the great surrealist and contemporary art. There is the work "Disintegration of the constancy of memory." The very name itself makes one interestedly imbued with the contents of the canvas, and the Spanish artist is generous with surprises and the amazing fruitfulness of fantasy.

"Disintegration" was created for two years, completed in 1954. It partially repeats the previously written "Persistence of memory." The same pocket watch dials melted in space, the distant cliff and the branch on the left side of the canvas are ideally duplicated in the two named works. Only all the objects of composition in the new creation disintegrate - disintegrate in an amazing way.

The wooden table in the left corner is now shown cut into identical bricks. Rhino horns have been added: they look straightened and staring off into the distance. A branch hanging in the air is fragmented into several parts; the clock on it is still melting and bending, only the arrow in the new version of the old picture is shown torn off the white dial.

Disintegration facilities are submerged. The ocean, deep water was associated among the surrealists with the human subconscious, mysterious, incomprehensible, but having its own logic. Dali’s expanse of water is suspended on another branch, it is similar to a plastic mirror.

What did the brilliant artist want to say with a strange name and no less unusual picture? The Spaniard did not always explain the paintings, left a lot of space for the thoughts and fantasies of the audience.

Let a plastic watch symbolize time, which can be perceived as fast or slow. But a fish with a red eye, a marvelous mask nearby and the "decay" of the picture make everyone think deeply and express their unique way of thinking.
