Salvador Dalí (Spanish, 1904–1989) ;迪士尼和達利;The Dali Christmas card: “The Nativity” The Accommodations of Desire

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11th 1904. His paintings are not beautiful; they spark no great emotion and can be fiendish to untangle. But what they do show is rare technical ability
Artist Salvador Dalí was born on this day in 1904

A los seis años quería ser cocinera. A los siete quería ser Napoleón. Mi ambición no ha hecho más que crecer; ahora sólo quiero ser Salvador Dalí y nada más
Cada mañana, cuando me levanto, experimento una exquisita alegría, la alegría de ser Salvador Dalí, y me pregunto entusiasmado ‘¿qué cosas maravillosas logrará hoy este Salvador Dalí?
所以,在達利戲劇博物館裡的風之宮的廳(Sala Palacio del Viento)裡,有一幅達利畫在天花板上的畫,達利和卡拉高高在上的把所有的參觀者「踩在腳底下」!

Dalí utilized his theory of "nuclear mysticism," a fusion of Catholicism, mathematics, and science, to create this unusual interpretation of Christ’s crucifixion. Levitating before a hypercube—a geometric, multidimensional form—Christ’s body is healthy, athletic, and bears no signs of torture; the crown of thorns and nails are missing.

Several dreamlike elements from Dali’s earlier Surrealist work feature in…

[Mart'di] Salvador Dalí définit ses œuvres comme des objets à fonctionnement symbolique. « Ces objets sont basés sur les fantasmes et représentations susceptibles d’être provoqués par la réalisation d’actes inconscients. Ils ne dépendent que de l’imagination amoureuse de chacun et sont extra-plastiques. »

Salvador Dalí was born today in 1904. His "Retrospective Bust of a Woman," on view now in our Fifth Floor galleries, features a preserved baguette, dangling cobs of corn, and a necklace made of a zoetrope (a precinematic film strip), among other striking details. When this sculpture was exhibited in 1933, Picasso's dog is said to have eaten the original loaf of bread. http://bit.ly/1zTHZIS

[新聞] 迪士尼和達利鮮為人知的友誼
華特迪士尼和薩爾瓦多達利,一個是世界知名的卡通帝國鉅子、電影創作者,創作的動畫片影響了好幾世代的童年;另一個則是個性古怪的超現實主義藝術家,充滿各種天馬行空的詭奇想法,常以潛意識裡頭的幻想元素作為創作靈感;一個創造出穿紅短褲的小黑老鼠和喋喋不休的鴨子,另一個則有融化的時鐘和紅脣沙發;一個說「如果你能夢想,那你就能實現它。」,另一個則說「我不嗑藥,我自己就是藥。」迪士尼和達利,可說是二十世紀以來最具有創造力與開闊視野的創作者,兩位風格各異的傳奇藝術家,如今在美國的達利博物館為兩人舉辦了《Disney and Dalí: Architects of the Imagination》展覽,將展現這兩位窮極一生都極力突破現實和夢想之界線的創作者之間的珍貴情誼:http://www.biosmonthly.com/contactd.php?id=5981


Happy birthday to Salvador Dalí, born on this day in 1904. Dalí was officially allied with Surrealism from 1929 to 1941, and even after that his work continued to reflect the influence of Surrealist thought and methodology.

Artist Salvador Dali was born this day in 1904, known for his Surrealist and “paranoid-critical” approach to art, which consisted in conveying his deepest psychological conflicts to the viewer in the hopes of eliciting an empathetic response.

The Dali Christmas card that outraged Hallmark shoppers

Salvador Dali’s Surrealist art proved a little too avant garde for the Hallmark shoppers of 1960.

Joyce Clyde Hall, the founder of Hallmark, began reaching out to several companies in the late 1940s to begin reproducing paintings and designs from contemporary artists on Hallmark cards. Hall’s mission was noble: sharing artistic masterpieces with average Americans. “So, through the ‘unsophisticated art’ of greeting cards, the world’s greatest masters were shown to millions of people who might otherwise not have been exposed to them,” Hall wrote in his autobiography.

By 1959, Dali had agreed to join the fold, submitting 10 potential designs to the company. Hallmark felt that two of them might have public appeal. The image above, “The Nativity,” was put into production and sold in stores alongside another of the Madonna. But while Dali’s creations would have been wildly successful in an art gallery, in the card aisle they caused a public outcry, and Hallmark ultimately pulled the cards from the racks. The several hundred that remain have become collectors’ items.

Dali designed a variety of Christmas images for other companies: He created 19 different Christmas cards for the Barcelona-based company Hoechst Iberica between 1958 and 1976, as well a Christmas-themed cover for Vogue in 1946 that is still reprinted as a card today, according to Rebecca Bender, a professor of Spanish at Grinnell College who has compiled a collection of the images.
