Dalí painted “The Persistence of Memory” in 1931 when he was just 28 years old and it became one of the most recognizable works of Surrealism. The Melting Clocks portray an uncanny landscape and it is the peak of the artist theory of “softness” and “hardness” suggesting interpretations of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity to which Dalí later explained it simply reminded him of a Camembert melting in the sun.

This famous interpretation was a result of a self-imposed hyper-sensitive state in which Dalí would interrupt his own micro naps allowing him to access a place in his mind more likely to be found in dreams than in waking consciousness. It evokes the feeling of total stillness, in which the artist mixes elements of reality to the ambiguous scene. Here time must lose all meaning.
