Salvador Dali Triptych Skateboards - Musart on Decks - Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee (1944)

- +


Introducing an exclusive limited edition of 100 Salvador Dali Skateboard Triptychs, a part of Musart's original collection, Musart on Decks. This collection showcases the iconic work of the Spanish Surrealist artist, featuring his masterpiece titled "Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee around a Pomegranate a Second before Wakening Up," created in 1944. This renowned artwork can be found at the National Museum of Thyssen-Bornemisza.

The title of this painting, though explicit and lengthy, perfectly describes the original piece, which is an oil and collage on canvas. The composition depicts the sleeping figure of Gala, Dali's wife and muse, floating above a rock in a serene marine landscape. Alongside her naked body, two drops of water, a pomegranate, and a bee are also suspended in the air. Gala's dream, triggered by the buzzing of the bee, unfolds in the upper part of the canvas. From an exploding pomegranate, a fish emerges, followed by two fierce tigers and a bayonet. In just one second, Gala will be awakened from her peaceful slumber by the bayonet.

Although Dali had already moved to America and dedicated less time to painting by 1944, this particular canvas signifies a return to his "paranoiac-critical method." Based on Freudian theories, Dali believed that images could be interpreted in multiple ways, establishing him as one of the prominent figures within the Surrealist movement.

The artist who above all others symbolizes Surrealism in the public imagination is the Spaniard, Salvador Dalí. His genius for publicity brought the word “Surrealism” to the level of a common noun in all languages. Not only Dali's art denotes that is irrational and erotic, but also mad–and fashionable. All at once, his paintings, his writings, his utterances, his actions, his appearance, and his iconic mustache celebrate his eccentricity. The Surrealists’ exploration of the human psyche and dreams reached new heights in Dalí’s extravagant works. In his paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and designs for furniture and movies, Dalí probed a deeply erotic dimension. While studying the writings of von Krafft-Ebing and Freud, he invented what he called the “paranoiac-critical method” to assist his creative process. Dalí’s surrealist works are characterized by their haunting allegorical empty space where even time has ended. An eerie, never-setting sun usually illuminates the barren landscapes, with often amorphous and imaginary creatures in the foreground. Dalí rendered every detail of this dreamscape with precise control, striving to make the world of his paintings convincingly real–in his words, to make the irrational concrete.
