Salvador Dalí: Bronze Sculptures and Furniture

In Salvador Dalí’s autobiography, La Vie Secrète, the artist recounts creating his first sculpture as a grade-school child: a model of the goddess Venus that adorned his pencil case. Today, Salvador Dalí’s most celebrated Surrealist symbols—melting clocks, horses, eyes, angels, and more—can be discovered cast in bronze, with designs often directly inspired by his own paintings and prints. In addition to his bronze sculptures, Dalí had a penchant for creating bronze designs for the home, including chairs, clocks, menorahs, lamps, and tables. Many of his furniture designs bring motifs from his paintings to life. For example, his sinuous Leda armchair is meticulously crafted from his 1935 painting, Femme á la Téte Rose, which showcases the delicate, three-legged chair in the foreground.
