I found this article while looking for something else entirely and it reminded of one of my favourite paintings: Canada's Dali Connection
I must admit that I am not all that familiar with the works of Salvador Dali. I have certainly seen reproductions of The Persistence of Memory (although I confess that until a few minutes ago, I had only ever known it as the melting clocks...) and other popular paintings, but have seen very few in person.
Dali's Santiago El Grande caught my eye twenty plus years ago on my first visit to the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, New Brunswick, and I am still drawn to it today. Unfortunately I am unable to find much information on the painting (most of the links just lead to poster galleries), so will just share the image for now.
The painting is huge and incredibly powerful...one gets lost in the dimensions. I think a roadtrip to Fredericton is in order this summer, so I can dally longer with this Dali masterpiece.
