This picture does not belong to the world-famous masterpieces of Salvador Dali. And probably few even know about its existence. The creation of this canvas took place in the period t called the author himself: “Surrealism is me!”
Drastic changes in Dali’s personal life and worldview lead him from cubism to a surrealistic reflection of reality. In the pictures, new ideas begin to appear, embodied in the most unpredictable forms and images.
A small picture of Dali “The Tower” at first glance gives the impression of a high estrangement and desire for solitude in this difficult world. On a rather blurred background, written in sand and pastel color of tonality, two figures of high towers rise in the distance. Which, as if leaning towards each other, to share something intimate. And above them float clouds, and in the center is a white sunspot, a little dim, like a ray of hope.
It was like it was pushing us to think that even in the desert, on such a hilly and unsuitable place for life there is always a ray of hope for the best, and it should be seen as the master’s main focus. And the tall towers – symbolizing human greatness, are still located on the sides. Their greatness depends on sunshine, that is, on man’s hope and faith in his own strength.
Particularly attractive in the picture is not the grandeur of the towers, not the expanse of the hilly desert, but the sunshine, supposedly coming from inside and penetrating into the soul. The longer to watch. The stronger the light, the greater the sense of hope! The author himself seems to convey this natural feeling of the relationship between the real and the desired in our life. The towers are a reflection of man in the natural world.
