In essence, it is the name of Salvador Dali that is directly connected with the direction of surrealism, because most people, when they hear this word, immediately recall the name of the great Spanish master, compared to professionalism and talent that could only one of his teachers, namely Pablo Picasso, who was also notable for his outstanding creativity.

All the works of the great Spanish master without any exceptions literally amaze with the depth of their psychological component, as well as with the paradox of figurative perception of reality. In addition, they are all filled with pure symbolic water. Is not excepted from the rules and his picture under. name “Peeping”, which was written by the artist in 1921, that is, it was one of his first work, which already managed to make him a famous person.
The plot of the picture is typical of the genre: a man sitting near the window of his house watches his neighbors with their activities, including love, as if symbolizing the interest in the intimate life of other people on the part of one person who, judging by the picture, is lonely. Human features are sharp and sharp, in the foreground we see dull and dark colors, while in the neighborhood bright colors boil the full life of other people.
