Salvador Dalí, The Ship, 1943

The Ship is Surrealist Salvador Dali’s watercolor reworking of renowned maritime artist Montague Dawson’s classic painting forged with his own enigmatic imagery. Dali (1904 – 1989), using a technique called Paranoiac-Critical , portrayed these objects and scenarios in meticulously realistic detail, depicting a dream world in which commonplace objects are juxtaposed and transformed in a bizarre and irrational fashion. Blazing innovative trails in Surrealism, Dali used his exceptional imagination to fuel his contributions to sculpture, theater, fashion and photography.
