  • About the work

"Venus a la tete de Roses" is a bronze sculpture, with lost wax casting, by the surrealistic master Salvador Dalì, realized in 1980-81. The artwork represents a modern and surrealistic Venus: the feminine figure doesn't have face, but it's made by roses, creating an alienated effect (typical of surrealism). The body of the goddess seams to destructure, it's not the same Venus of the classic tradition. She is forced to support herself on a crutch: this is one of the most recurrent object in Dalì' production and it symbolizes the duality between the "hardness" (the body) and the "softness" (the unconscious). Simply plug it in, press the botton and the crutch lights up!

This work is part of a worldwide edition of 350 examples and 35 E.A., with Dalì's signature and Certificate of Authenticity; it is published on "DALI, sculpture & objets, le dur et le mou", Robert and Nicolas Descharnes (Eccart 2007), pg 259. This scuplture is signed E.A.


About the Artists

1904 Figueras, Spain

Salvador Dalí was one of the most well known surrealist artists of the twentieth century. Born in 1904 in Figueras, Catalonia in Spain. A great experimenter of the pictorial, theatrical and cinematographic fields. His work is easily distinguishable due to the individualistic style and provocative subject matter. Owing to the success of the surrealist movement, Dalí was able to use the Freudian theory of dream analysis in order to express the workings of the unconscious mind and associate words, images and thoughts to provoke a specific kind of emotion in the viewers. According to some critics, Dalí’s surrealist work reveals his darkest secrets and an alternative reality. Dalí was an expert draftsman and colorist which broadened his horizons as an artist. He used a variety of techniques and mediums to create his artwork. These techniques included, lithography (colour and print), sculpting, oil painting, fashion designing and writing. His most successful phase of surrealism was inspired by Pablo Picasso, whom he met in Paris. He was also inspired by an Italian painter called Giorgio de Chirico. Dalí’s work can be viewed as modern, innovative, deep, symbolic and sometimes grotesque. He used the themes of death, eroticism, childhood memories, dreams and portrayed them in a highly impressive, visually pleasing way that welcomed a great audience, making him relevant even today.
