Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee..., 1944 by Salvador Dali

The full title of this stunning piece is Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening is a definitive work of the surrealist master Salvador Dali. According to Dali himself, the aim of this piece was "to express for the first time in images Freud's discovery of... a chance event which causes the sleeper to wake up. Thus, as a bar might fall on the neck of a sleeping person, causing them to wake up and for a long dream to end with the guillotine blade falling on them, the noise of the bee here provokes the sensation of the sting which will awaken Gala." Gala, the woman in the painting, is both named and posed for by Gala Dali, Salvador's wife and muse. 


About the Designer: Salvador Dali

Spanish artist Salvador Dalí (1904 – 1989) was a groundbreaking icon of the Surrealist movement and one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Extraordinarily imaginative, he also sculpted, and contributed to fashion, photography and theater. His surreal paintings are characterized by a refined sense of light and space often attributed to his study of Renaissance master works. In contemporary art, Dali is now a master of his own movement.
