Pierrot and Guitar

Artist: Salvador Dali
Medium: oil on collage on cardboard
Year: 1924

Salvado Dali was a Spanish surrealist painter, among other things.  Born in spain in 1904 he was pushed by his parents to harness his talents. He attended drawing school and was introduced to modern painting by a family friend Ramon Pichot. He also studied at the school of fine arts and gained practice in cubism. This painting specifically is one of his collages. I loved it immediately because I am drawn to the warm colors and the musical element that it involves. Music and art are very important parts of my life and this incorporated the two.
