The Persistence of Memory (1931) by Salvador Dalí

Salvador Dalí was a Spanish surrealist painter who lived from 1904 to 1989. He often referred to his paintings as “hand-painted dream photographs.” The Persistence of Memory is his most famous work and thought to be one of the greatest paintings of the twentieth century. The eyes of the figure in the painting are closed, suggesting that what’s being observed is a dream state, unseen by the natural eye.
