About The Persistence of Memory
One of the most recognizable work of Surrealism, this 1931 painting by Salvador Dalí is often referred to as “Melting Clocks”.

Fairly small in size, it measures 9.5 inches x 13 inches or 24 cm x 33 cm. It was given by an anonymous donor to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, where it still hangs today.

The soft melting pocket watch epitomizes Dali’s theory of “softness” and “hardness”, which was central to his thinking at the time.

About Salvador Dalí
Salvador Dalí (born May 11, 1904, Figueres, Spain—died January 23, 1989, Figueres) was a Spanish Surrealist painter and printmaker, influential for his explorations of subconscious imagery. Major themes in his work include dreams, the subconscious, sexuality, religion, science and his closest personal relationships. To the dismay of those who held his work in high regard, and to the irritation of his critics, his eccentric and ostentatious public behavior often drew more attention than his artwork.
