Some paintings

Hi everyone just wanted to share what in my belief are the greatest paintings ever done by Man, which arguably in my opinion belong to one of the greatest painters to ever have lived.

                                           The first one is called "The Persistence of Memory"

                                           The second is a rebuild of the first and is called
                                          "The Disintregation of the Persistence of Memory"

            Both are by Dali and the wiki articles on both of them are really good food for thought:
                                                                                                                                         Cheers, César ;)

  1. Hi César! I also find these paintings particularly fascinating. It definitely portrays the "torment of memory" and that mysterious "thing" called Time, both which have been the subject of study and desperation of many artists.
    Still in the Surrealist realm there are Manifestos that may be of interest such as that by André Breton and (I suspect) others.

    As a side note, I changed the background of the blog to better appreciate the images, but you are free to change it anytime. As is anyone in the class; please feel free to make the changes you like!
