Le Sommeil est une huile sur toile by Salvador Dali Made in 1937, it is a surreal artwork, a near-exact replica of le rocher de Cadaqués.
Commentary by Salvador Dalí in the No. 10 of the journal the Minotaur:
“ I have often imagined and depicted the monster of sleep as a heavy giant head with a filiform body sustained in balance by reality crutches. When these crutches break, we feel that we are falling. Most of my readers have experienced this sensation of suddenly falling into the void, just when sleep completely wins you over. Awake in the rush, the heart stirred by a convulsive tremor, you do not always doubt that this sensation is a reminder of childbirth. »
Salvador Dali, is unanimously recognized as the greatest surrealist artist, one of the greatest artists of the 20th century and definitively the most charismatic. The artwork on sale is part of a collection of rarities which are not very often or even never exhibited.Each of them represent part of this artist’s journey who is overflowing with abundant and delirious even imagination. These are all testimonies of the history of this genuine creative genius.
To be discovered. With rare exceptions, I only own one copy of each.
