Note: This shows a Polyhedra with an artist and his palette within. Polyhedra became popular motives in art when linear perspective was introduced by the Italians of the fifteenth century. The flat faces and hard edges of polyhedral forms makes them very good exercises for this wanting to practice perspective constructions. The “Sacrament off the Last Supper” by Dali contains a skeletal outline of part of a regular dodecahedron - the Platonic symbol of the universe.

About Salvador Dalí

Salvador Dalí was a leading proponent of Surrealism, the 20-century avant-garde movement that sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious through strange, dream-like imagery. “Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision,” he said. Dalí is specially credited with the innovation of “paranoia-criticism,” a philosophy of art making he defined as “irrational understanding based on the interpretive-critical association of delirious phenomena.” In addition to meticulously painting fantastic compositions, such as The Accommodations of Desire (1929) and the melting clocks in his famed The Persistence of Memory (1931), Dalí was a prolific writer and early filmmaker, and cultivated an eccentric public persona with his flamboyant mustache, pet ocelot, and outlandish behavior and quips. “Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure,” he once said. “That of being Salvador Dalí.”
