Description of the painting by Salvador Dali "Still Life"


"Still Life" was written by Salvador Dali in 1918. It is possible that the artist wrote it a little later, but after some time dated it by an early date. Dali painted a picture on canvas measuring 60 × 70 cm, using oil paints for drawing the image.

In the center of the picture are vegetables and fruits, ceramic dishes. Apples, onions, peppers are gifts of nature. A jug and a ceramic jar are objects created by man. The artist wanted to emphasize that these objects can be combined with each other, despite the fact that they have different origins. This happens with people: all people should be friendly to others, regardless of whether he is rich or poor. The background of the picture is light brown. That is, it is neutral, so it does not distract attention from other objects. Speaking of color, we can say that the artist picked up rather interesting colors: it is not always possible to meet black pepper, blue-red gogoshary, etc. However, all these colors contrast excellently against a neutral background.

The most important feature of the artist was that he was able to create not only picturesque, but also graphic images. At the same time, each of them turned out not just beautiful, but magnificent, unsurpassed.

Salvador himself said that he surpasses all other artists in his talent. In his opinion, no one else could draw the same way he did. Of course, this also has some truth. After all, each artist has his own style of drawing. So Salvador Dali painted his still life in a different way than it is usually painted. Often still lifes are depicted in black and white to better convey chiaroscuro. Dali made his “Still Life” in color, but he managed to convey all the features of vegetables and fruits.
