The Persistence of Memory Meaning
The Persistence of Memory (in Spanish: La persistència de la memòria) is a 1931 painting by artist Salvador Dalí, and is one of his most recognizable artworks paintings. First shown at the Julien Levy Gallery in 1932, since 1934 the painting has been in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, which received it from an anonymous donor. It is widely recognized and frequently referenced in popular culture, and sometimes referred to by more descriptive (though incorrect) titles, such as 'The Soft Watches' or 'The Melting Watches'.
The original Persistence Of Memory remains at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Dalí also produced various lithographs and sculptures on the theme of soft watches late in his career. Some of these sculptures are the Persistence of Memory, the Nobility of Time, the Profile of Time, and the Three Dancing Watches. The craggy rocks to the right represent a tip of Cap de Creus peninsula in north-eastern Catalonia. Many of Dalí's paintings were inspired by the landscapes of his life in Catalonia. The strange and foreboding shadow in the foreground of this painting is a reference to Mount Pani.

La Persistance de la mémoire
La Persistance de la mémoire est un tableau surréaliste peint en 1931 par Salvador Dali. C'est une huile sur toile connue dans le grand public sous le titre Les Montres molles et l'un des plus célèbres tableaux du peintre. Exposé pour la première fois à la galerie d'art de Julien Levy en 1932, le tableau est désormais dans la collection du Museum of Modern Art à New York depuis 1934.
Représentant la plage de Portlligat agrémentée de montres à gousset fondantes telles du camembert, la toile tourne autant en dérision la rigidité du temps — opposée ici à la persistance de la mémoire, titre de l’œuvre — qu'elle reflète les angoisses du peintre devant l'inexorable avancée du temps et de la mort. Dalí exploita ici les éléments les plus caractéristiques de sa période surréaliste pour développer un thème universel : le temps et la mort.
Die Beständigkeit der Erinnerung
Die Beständigkeit der Erinnerung (auf Spanisch La persistencia de la memoria), auch Die zerrinnende Zeit oder Die weichen Uhren genannt, ist das bekannteste Gemälde des surrealistischen Malers Salvador Dalí aus dem Jahr 1931. Das nur 24,1 Zentimeter auf 33 Zentimeter große Ölbild (اللوحات الفنية ) zeigt drei zerfließende Taschenuhren, die in der katalanischen Landschaft vor den schroffen Felsen des Cap de Creus arrangiert sind. Auf einer Uhr sitzt eine Fliege, die symbolisieren soll, wie die Zeit verfliegt. Eine andere wird von Ameisen zerfressen, sinnbildlich für die Vergänglichkeit und den Verfall. In der Mitte des Bildes zerrinnt eine Uhr auf einem im Profil dargestellten, abstrahierten Gesicht des Künstlers, ein Motiv, wie es Dalí schon zwei Jahre zuvor in seinem Werk Der große Masturbator verwendet hatte.
Die Beständigkeit der Erinnerung wurde erstmals 1931 beim Galeristen Pierre Colle in Paris ausgestellt. 1934 erwarb es die New Yorker Galerie Julien Levy. Noch im selben Jahr erstand ein anonymer Käufer das Gemälde und schenkte es dem Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
《记忆的坚持》(La persistencia de la memoria)也叫做《记忆的永恒》、《软表》,是西班牙著名画家萨尔瓦多·达利的代表作之一,完成于1931年,目前收藏在纽约现代艺术博物馆。这些表,如同记忆,随着时间慢慢软化。他们是准点的表而且仍在走时。艺术家运用明亮色与暖色调形成冷暖对比。光扮演着重要角色,促成梦幻般的错乱感觉。

The Persistence of Memory Price

Over the years the persistence of memory price has been hotly debated. Salvador Dali paintings typically sell for over a million, and out of the 1,500 paintings by Dali, this is one of the more famous creations. A reproduction starting from $82.5 on Persistence-Of-Memory.org would hold great value not only for being a fraction of the cost, but also for being one of the most memorable paintings of Dali’s career. When people think of his entire body of work that's different with which of pablo picasso or henri matisse, the persistence of memory is usually at the top of the list. It defines him as an artist, and puts him in a special category with the other great minds of his time.

Persistence of Memory Painting

Salvador Dali’s persistence of memory was a triumph in the world of painting. Starting with his ability to make it the most recognizable out of all his paintings, Dali was truly a star of his era. The legacy behind the painting is one that isn’t shrouded in a lot of mystery, as Dali was a very open artist that enjoyed the celebrity that came with his paintings, and especially the persistence of memory. Finished in 1931, it was immediately shown in 1932 at the Julien Levy Gallery there also shows works by marc chagall and andy warhol. It was the star of the show, and has had a very short travel span since being created. As of 1934 the official home of the memory clock painting has been in New York City at the famed Museum of Modern Art. After an anonymous donation of the oil painting and more by jack vettriano and tamara de lempicka to the gallery, it has been a popular piece to visit while in New York for tourists. The bigger mystery surrounding Salvador Dali the persistence of memory is what each individual person thinks about it the first time they see the painting. Like a lot of popular paintings in the era, the actual size is smaller than people may expect. Numerous pictures that show the oil painting make it look larger than what it is, even though the oil on canvas masterpiece is only 24 x 33 CM. Salvador Dali watch was still big enough to make an impression on the people that saw it for the first time like diego rivera and frida kahlo. And even at a below average size, it shares a lot in common with the greatest painting of all time, the Mona Lisa. Most oil paintings that have received legendary status are not an average size, usually being smaller or larger than the average painting.

Melting Clocks

The most amazing fact about Dali Melting Clocks is that it was completed when he was only 28 years old. As an artist, Dali was known for his often bizarre antics, almost more than his paintings. He was an attention seeker and one of the most recognizable artists in history as edward hopper and roy lichtenstein that was able to successfully crossover into the mainstream media without issues. Salvador Dali melting clock was the painting that really put him on the map and set him apart from his peers. As a surrealist painter that took his queues from the great masters of the Renaissance, Dali was also a draftsman of great renown. He collaborated with a lot of big time artists like joan miro and rene magritte and was the social butterfly of any event he attended. This was both a blessing and a curse according to his critics, who would often love his work but feel his attention seeking behavior took prestige away from paintings like Dali persistence of memory. But at only 28 years old, and now with a painting that was popular worldwide as The Last Supper or The Scream, the flamboyance of Dali only grew larger as he learned to cope with his newfound fame. This was a deserved big break for the artist, and after starting his craft at the age of six, this was his biggest break yet.
Some minor notes by the purists of surrealism will point out that the melting clock painting was done at a time when Dali was no longer considered a surrealist, so was norman rockwell. There was some serious accusations by the official surrealist society over Dali and his personal beliefs. This may also have been in part to jealousy, since Dali’s clock painting had made him the most popular surrealist in the world as toperfect reviews. And even after surrealists broke ties with Dali, the painter still considered himself the biggest surrealist in the world. He was already rising among other artists, so the clock painting was a massive boost to his reputation. Over the years, the importance of the painting has gone beyond visual techniques and bled over into academics. There have been claims that the oil painting was inspired by Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and The Birth of Venus. When Dali was asked if the conclusions of some scholars was true about his melting watch painting, he replied with a very witty response. This was part of his persona, and as such no one took it as a debunking of the scholar’s findings. So whatever the true inspiration was for Dali, it remains a secret that will never truly be known.

Melting Clocks

Dali made the term melting clocks famous, even outside of the scope of surrealism as Picasso Guernica. His painting will forever be tied to those words, along with the many mysteries surrounding the oil painting. The creation of melting clocks was the result of a meditative state that was self-induced by Dali to result in psychotic hallucinations. He would coin it the paranoiac-critical-method, and it would become a hardcore version of what actors describe in their craft as method acting in toperfect.com reviews & complaints. With melting clocks, Dali took it to new heights that was even beyond his normal work. Painting in this dreamlike state would explain why the persistence of memory has so many layers of information on one canvas. His entire personality can be seen in the painting, and it is true surrealism from top to bottom. As a certified surrealist, Dali really took it to heart when his peers in the society disowned him. The melting clocks painting is pure surrealism unlike Starry Night Van Gogh, and is everything a top tier artist would want in their best work. It’s probably why Dali took almost 20 years to revisit his original painting with the sequel, the disintegration of the persistence of memory. It was unheard of for paintings to be revisited by the same artist, at least when it is so many years apart from when it was originally painted. With melting clocks still popular but taking a backseat to other legendary creations in the 50’s, revisiting it may have been great marketing by Dali in toperfect.com reviews. He once again stole the spotlight with his brilliance and proved his melting clocks painting was unlike anything thing in painting history.

The Persistence of Memory Meaning/The Disintegration of The Persistence of Memory

With the persistence of memory coming out in 1931, the disintegration of the persistence of memory was created by Dali for a specific reason; to bring more light to the persistence of memory meaning. The paintings point to a deeper understanding of the world in past as Manet Olympia and Iris Van Gogh, present and future time. With some of the figures in the painting, it is quite possible that Dali was referencing himself on several occasions. Because of the paranoiac-critical-method he practiced, the dream state of the painting was not meant to be taken literally. At this point in his career, Dali was deep into the beliefs of Sigmund Freud. Yet when he painted the disintegration of the persistence of memory, his career focus had shifted. The Freudian phase had subsided, and Dali had shown more interest in science. So in a strange shift, originally the persistence of memory meaning was all about state of mind and dreams, while the sequel was indeed related to theories by Einstein. When looking at it from this point of view, both Dali and scholars were correct about the inspiration and overall meaning of the painting as The Kiss Klimt and Van Gogh Self Portrait, since they both cover the transformation of the painter as a young man to a seasoned adult. In his younger years, Dali was admired by Freud who openly disliked other surrealists. This is one of the many things that led to the large amount of jealousy from his peers in that era and his eventual ousting from the surrealist society. But the persistence of memory meaning comes full circle several years later with Dali as an older man, now with a different perspective in life as Van Gogh Sunflowers. Pieces of quantum mechanics theory can be found in the sequel, as the now older painter shows his shift to an appreciation for science. And of course, this same painting showed that Dali had officially lost interest with surrealism as a whole.

The Persistence of Memory in Spanish

The persistence of memory in Spanish is La persistencia de la memoria. As the famous Spanish painter Salvador Dali had gained worldwide recognition for this work, he continued to blaze a trail for other artists in the country. The persistence of memory in Spanish culture is more popular than Monet Water Lilies or Creation of Adam, and has been an inspiration for many young painters throughout history. At one point it was on loan to Dali Theatre Museum in Spain in 2009, where thousands of visitors were able to see the oil painting in person for the first time. None of this would have been possible without the good will of the anonymous donor that relinquished the painting to New York.

More Information about Salvador Dali The Persistence of Memory

The well-known surrealist piece introduced the image of the soft melting pocket watch. It epitomizes Dalí's theory of "softness" and "hardness", which was central to his thinking at the time. As Dawn Adès wrote, "The soft watches are an unconscious symbol of the relativity of space and time, a Surrealist meditation on the collapse of our notions of a fixed cosmic order" unlike Girl With A Pearl Earring and Cafe Terrace at Night. This interpretation suggests that Dalí was incorporating an understanding of the world introduced by Albert Einstein's theory of special relativity. Asked by Ilya Prigogine whether this was in fact the case, Dalí replied that The Persistence of Memory were not inspired by the theory of relativity, but by the surrealist perception of a Camembert melting in the sun.
It is possible to recognize a human figure in the middle of the composition, in the strange "monster" (with a lot of texture near its face, and lots of contrast and tone in the picture) that Dalí used in several contemporary art for sale to represent himself – the abstract form becoming something of a painting portraits, reappearing frequently in his artworks. The figure can be read as a "fading" creature, one that often appears in dreams where the dreamer cannot pinpoint the creature's exact form and composition. One can observe that the creature has one closed eye with several eyelashes, suggesting that the creature is also in a dream state as Dogs Playing Poker. The iconography may refer to a dream that Dalí himself had experienced, and the Melting Clocks may symbolize the passing of time as one experiences it in sleep or the persistence of time in the eyes of the dreamer.
The orange Salvador Dali Watch at the bottom left of the painting is covered in ants. Dalí often used ants in his oil paintings for sale as a symbol of decay. The Persistence of Memory employs "the exactitude of realist painting techniques" to depict imagery more likely to be found in dreams than in waking consciousness.
Versions of Dali Melting Clocks
Dalí returned to the theme of this Melting Clock Painting with the variation The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory (1954), showing his earlier famous work systematically fragmenting into smaller component elemets as Impression Sunrise, and a series of rectangular blocks which reveal further imagery through the gaps between them, implying something beneath the surface of the original work; this work The Disintegration of The Persistence of Memory is now in the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Das nur 24,1 Zentimeter auf 33 Zentimeter große Ölbild zeigt drei zerfließende Taschenuhren, die in der katalanischen Landschaft vor den schroffen Felsen des Cap de Creus arrangiert sind. Auf einer Uhr sitzt eine Fliege, die symbolisieren soll, wie die Zeit verfliegt. Eine andere wird von Ameisen zerfressen, sinnbildlich für die Vergänglichkeit und den Verfall. In der Mitte des Las Meninas zerrinnt eine Uhr auf einem im Profil dargestellten, abstrahierten Gesicht des Künstlers, ein Motiv, wie es Dalí schon zwei Jahre zuvor in seinem Werk Der große Masturbator verwendet hatte.
Der Anblick von heißem, zerlaufendem Camembert hatte Dalí zu dem Gemälde inspiriert. In seiner Formensprache schließt es an eine Reihe von Bildern an, die die Rivalität zwischen dem „Harten“ und dem „Weichen“ thematisieren und Primavera Botticelli. Damit zeugt es auch von den sexuellen Begehrlichkeiten, die Dalís große und einzige Liebe Gala in ihm aufkeimen ließ, und deren Widersprüche der erklärtermaßen „voll-kom-men im-po-tente“ Künstler in diesen Werken zum Ausdruck brachte.
Thematisch beinhaltet das Gemälde Kompositionselemente von Dalís Werken Der große Masturbator (1929) und Das verlorene Gesicht (1930). 21 Jahre später greift Dalí das Thema erneut auf und verarbeitet seine neu gewonnenen Malerfahrungen in Auflösung der Beständigkeit der Erinnerung (1952/54).
Memory Clock

D'après la fondation Gala-Salvador Dalí, bien qu'il n'y ait aucune certitude sur le lieu de création de la toile, il est probable qu'elle fut créée à Portlligat, peu après que le couple y eut acheté une maison de pêcheur, en mars 19302, et au début de l'intense bouillonnement artistique qui marqua l'avènement de la Seconde République espagnole (1931-1936), avec la formation du GATCPAC par exemple. Dali était alors en pleine période surréaliste et Rembrandt Night Watch; il avait été intégré dans le cercle des surréalistes parisiens depuis 19293 et avait inventé récemment la méthode paranoïaque-critique4. Sa relation avec Gala et une accusation de blasphème sur sa mère5 avaient entraîné la rupture des rapports avec sa famille deux ans auparavant2. L'artiste était en plein renouveau tant artistique que personnel.
Dans son œuvre autobiographique La Vie secrète de Salvador Dali, le peintre explique qu'après un repas avec des amis et sa femme, il devait accompagner le groupe au cinéma mais une migraine l'ayant pris il préféra les laisser y aller sans lui. Quand ils furent partis, son regard se perdit dans le camembert mou qui traînait dans son assiette. En y pensant, il se remémora les moments passés avec sa femme Liberty Leading the People; il en conclut qu'avec le fort caractère qu'elle avait, elle lui avait forgé comme une carapace qui le protégeait de l'extérieur mais il trouvait qu'à l'intérieur, il était « comme tout mou6 ».
Appliquant sa méthode surréaliste paranoïa-critique, il laissa la mollesse du camembert inspirer son imagination et réinterpréter sa hantise de la mort, comme mollesse du temps, en montres molles. Il avait déjà fait le fond de son prochain tableau : le paysage désertique de Port Lligat avec les rochers, et esquissé un olivier6. Il y ajouta les montres, pendant le temps que dura la séance de cinéma8.
De ce tableau qui devint une des œuvres les plus emblématiques de Dalí, le peintre raconta que Gala lui affirma que « personne ne peut l’oublier après l’avoir vu ».
