Description of Salvador Dali's painting "Anatomy Lesson"


In his painting "The Anatomy Lesson", the Spanish artist Salvador Dali continues to experiment with surrealism.

Throughout his life, Salvador Dali was driven by the Nietzschean will to power, following the German philosopher freeing himself from any moral and moral coercion, refusing to obey any rules and standards. He was always ready for new creative experiments and preferred to rid himself of the rules of sequence. The phenomenon of Dali is still not fully understood.

In his painting "The Anatomy Lesson", Salvador Dali is also far from any stereotypes and artistic norms. It is known that at one time the Spanish artist perfectly studied anatomy, but he prefers to paint the canvas without clear, tangible images, thereby making it both indefinite and ambiguous. The Spanish genius of surrealism in the center of the picture depicts a man’s body cut into pieces for an anatomy lesson.

This picture, as in almost all the canvases of the artist, is deprived of reality and common sense: around the cut man, in smears and blots that look like blood, the faces of various people are studied studying its anatomical structure. The picture is made in black and white, it is full of illusions and paradoxical combinations, symbols and philosophy.

Like most of his paintings, Salvador Dali showed his uniqueness, unusualness and his individual style.

The painting "Anatomy Lesson" once again shows the challenge of the Spanish artist to the traditional styles of painting and the "museum", as he often called classic, art. Surrealism was expressed not only in creativity, but was its way of being in general, the Spanish artist was completely immersed in irrationality. As a result, not one of his paintings, but he himself became the most important work of surrealism.
