Hercules lifting the skin of the Sea asking Venus to wait a moment before waking up Love
Description:

Date: 1963
Technique: Oil on canvas
Size: 43 x 55 cm
Signature: Unsigned, undated.
Localisation: Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum, Nagasaki (Japan)

The idea of showing the surface of the sea as a skin had already been used by the painter
He found the idea by observing the sharp edge of a body of water in a glass aquarium
Controlling the colour below the sea surface requires great skill
The representation of the typical rock forms of Port Lligat demonstrates Dali's mastery of landscaping

Salvador Dali, is unanimously recognized as the greatest surrealist artist, one of the greatest artists of the 20th century and definitively the most charismatic. The work offered for sale is part of a collection, in addition to the most famous paintings and rarities by the artist, most of which are rarely or have never been seen. The collection consists mainly of lesser-known paintings and drawings from the many periods of one of the most prolific artists of our time.
Not all of these works are always the most "beautiful" in the aesthetic sense of the word, although in Dali's work, beauty is a constant. They are all interesting, very exciting, each one is representing a part of the journey of this artist who has an overflowing, abundant, delusional imagination. These are all testimonies of the history of this genuine creative genius.
To be discovered. With rare exceptions, I only own one copy of each.
