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 a while he dated it with an early number. Dali painted a picture on canvas, the size of 60×70 cm, using oil paints for drawing the image.

In the center of the picture – vegetables and fruits, ceramic dishes. Apples, onions, peppers are the gifts of nature. The jug and the 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 a different origin. The same happens with people: all people should be friendly to others, regardless of whether they are rich or poor. The background of the picture is light brown. That is, it is neutral, so it does not distract attention from other items. Speaking of color, we can say that the artist picked up quite interesting colors: it is not always possible to find black pepper, blue-red gogoshars, etc. However, all these colors contrast perfectly 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. In addition, each of them was not just beautiful, but gorgeous, unsurpassed.

Salvador himself said that he surpasses all other artists in his talent. In his opinion, no one else could paint the same way as he. Of course, this also has some truth. After all, each artist has his own style of drawing. That Salvador Dali painted his still life is not the way it is usually painted. Often, still lifes are depicted in black and white to better convey light and shadow. Dali executed his “Still Life” in color, but at the same time he managed to convey all the peculiarities of vegetables and fruits.
