“Online Fine Arts Club” is for all teens to join.  Just post your comment. For these  first blogs I wanted to share my interests and knowledge about art history, a subject matter which has opened numerous doors for me. Now when I walk in to a museum, I not only understand the historical context and meaning of the artworks, but also connect with them in a whole new level that transcends spoken words. So I share with you a few pieces that reflect the theme of movement. I hope you enjoy it!

The work on the left is titled The Persistence of Memory created by Salvador Dali on oil on panel in 1931. Dali was a prominent Spanish Catalan Surrealist painter born in Figueres, Spain. This painting represents the movement of conceptions and reflects the psychology of the people during the time period. Being a groundbreaking icon of the Surrealist movement, Dali’s work probed the unconscious world of thoughts, dreams and perception in fanciful and nightmarish images. Strongly influence by Sigmund Freud’s theories regarding dreams and the subconscious, Dali expresses the deepest fears, hopes and frustrations of his era in a way that is uniquely his own. This work relates to the theme of movement by capturing the changing ideas of the people as art shifts from reality to depict the element of surprise and imagination.  What I like about this painting is its abstract perceptions.  What do you think?  Post in comments! We can have wonderful discussion about art…
