Title: The Persistence Of Memory Painting By Salvador Dali
Resolution: 3840 x 2160

The Persistence of Memory, painted by Salvador Dali in 1931, is another iconic work of art. Known for its melting clocks, the painting is a classic representation of surrealism. The painting introduces the image of the soft melting pocket watch, epitomizing Dali’s theory of “softness” and “hardness”. The painting suggests a dream-like state where time loses all meaning. The human figure in the middle of the composition, a strange “monster” that Dali used to represent himself, adds to the painting’s dreamy quality.
