Dali - Statue - Portrait of Picasso
For over 50 years, the company Parastone has dedicated itself to producing high-quality hand painted three dimensional representations of timeless masterpieces. This resin three dimensional representation depicts the iconic Spanish surrealist artist, Salvador Dali and his work "Portrait to Picasso" (1947), and belongs to Parastone's museum collection. The Spaniard Surrealist artist also emerged like Pablo Picasso, the architect Gaudi and Joan Miro as products of the rich Catalan culture. During the early 1920's while attending Madrid's academy of fine arts Dali first discovered modern painting through the works of the french impressionists, the futurists, Picasso's cubism, De Chirico, and the Italian Metaphysical School which influenced his works greatly. Most importantly for Dali's artistic development was the discovery of Freudian Psychology whose studies on dreams and the subconscious answered some of his childhood torments and erotic fantasies. In 1929 that Salvador Dali became involved with the surrealist thanks to Joan Miro, and officially became a member of the surrealist movement after he moved to Paris.

Surreal Objects: Sculptures and Objects from Dalí to
"Beautiful as the chance meeting of a sewing machine and an umbrella on a dissecting table" is the most famous formulation of the Surrealist effect, penned by the Comte de Lautréamont in the 1860s and adopted as a rallying cry by André Breton at the inception of the Surrealist movement. Lautréamont's vivid simile lent itself both to poetry and to visual art, and the Surrealist artists were quick to grasp that an entirely new kind of sculpture could be made from such potent combinations of commonplace objects. Duchamp's Dada-era objects, Freud's theories of the fetish, the "uncanny" and sexual symbolism and the popularity in Europe of African votive objects supplied further stimulus, and soon Breton, Man Ray, Salvador Dalí and even Picasso had populated this infant genre with a whole slew of disquieting (and sometimes fun) inventions--May Ray's 1920 "Cadeau" (a clothes iron with tacks attached) and Dalí's 1936 lobster telephone are two instantly recognizable examples. Younger recruits to the Surrealist cause, such as Hans Bellmer, Isamu Noguchi and Meret Oppenheim developed the possibilities of the genre even further, and Oppenheim's 1936 "Fur Cup" must be today the supreme instance of the Surrealist object.
