Size: A4 Landscape

The painting "The Persistence of Memory" by Salvador Dalí, created in 1931, is one of the most iconic and recognizable works of Surrealism. It features a dreamlike landscape with a desolate, barren background that suggests a twilight or dawn setting with a calm sea or bay. The central motif is a series of melting clocks draped over various objects, including a tree branch, the edge of a table or platform, and what appears to be a sleeping face, often interpreted as a self-portrait of Dalí himself, though distorted and dreamlike. The soft, melting clocks are thought to represent the fluidity and relativity of time within the dream state. The precise detail in which these surreal elements are painted contrasts with the irrationality of the scene, creating a paradoxical visual experience that challenges viewers' perceptions of reality. The overall effect is one of eerie stillness and otherworldly quietness, making it a quintessential piece of Dalí's exploration of the subconscious.
