With his typical Surrealist flourish, Dalí transforms an ordinary object into the extraordinary, animated with a new dimension of functionality. Originally created in watercolour in 1954, the piano, one of Dalí's favourite images, is brought to life through its own musicality, dancing to accompany the ethereal figure for which it plays.
"Surrealist Piano" is one of six of his original paintings that have been reproduced into Limited Edition print format. The other prints include:
"Dance of Time
"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.
