The melting watch is the most famous of all Dalínian symbols. Originally created in watercolour in 1979 the iconic watch is used here in triplicate, floating in sequence above the ground, to depict the fluidity of time, and to reinforce the inevitability of its passing. The figure represents Man, resigned never to control time, as it flees inexorably from our grasp.
"Dance of Time" is one of six of his original paintings that have been reproduced into Limited Edition print format. The other prints include:
"Alice in Wonderland"
"Homage to Fashion"
In the early stages of Dali's career he was greatly inspired by the theories of Freud on the subconscious and the meaning of dreams. Indeed much of the surrealist movement can be paralleled with the work of Freud at that time. The foundation of the surrealist movement was based upon the explanation and interpretation of dreams and the hidden unconscious desires. To bring up images from his subconscious mind, Dalí began to induce hallucinatory states upon himself by a process he described as 'paranoiac critical'. Once Dalí perfected this method, his painting style matured very quickly and he began to produce the paintings that made him the world's best known surrealist artist.
