    Good thread.

    Very nice answer.

    tbh, That's not what I get out of surrealism, but I see what you mean.

    With the desolate winter landscape, this is the only one I can say I understand.

    I agree Leila, the Hitler one is easy to understand.. but I also think the Nostalgic Bump is pretty clear too..

    how've you been Lulu?

    the temptation of st. anthony was easiest to understand for me

    a man, naked as he was born, opts for a simple life of "purity" and devotion to the cross rather than succumb to the allure of a more lavish, indulgent lifestyle

    the huge elephants walking on elongated and emaciated limbs symbolizes the fragility and instability he sees in such a lifestyle... it could come crashing down at any moment

    after this analysis of the painting, i decided to look up who st. anthony was and found this in the first line of wikipedia



    "Anthony was born in a very rich family who wanted him to become a noble, but these were not his wishes."

    Yes and no for me, because Nostalgic Bump has sooo much detail.

    HELLLOOOO, Alisha. I'm realllllly good actually. You? What's this sad business???

    That's funny...

    Again, the amount of detail means we have to keep looking deeper for meaning.

    hahaha...

    the persistence of memory and birth of the new man are the first paintings i saw of Dali(back in elementary), and i really liked them, they've always captured my imagination. there was another one...mainly in hues of blue, a room with window-like openings, and a wwII airplane through one opening and walking elephants in another...i can't remember what the name of it was.

    but not everything he's done i like. it's almost half and half.

    I wonder why as adults we lose our sense of imagination. When you're a child you let your imagination run wild. I've always admired great artists ability to create something out of nothing other than a picture in their mind.

    i'm going to begin illustrating my dreams. they make Dali's seem tame and timid.

    I'm sure that's what dali was hoping for.
