Vocabulary Lesson 9

Salvador Dali (1904-1989)

Surrealist artist

PowerPoint by Mrs. Hinton

For English 10

Montevallo High School


PERCEPTION

  • What is your perception of the work of surrealist artist Salvador Dali? Do you understand, for instance, his depictions of the human body?


MUTABLE

  • For artistic purposes, Dali certainly found the human body mutable: He freely changed its basic form in a number of paintings.


INDESTRUCTIBLE

  • Dali’s view in the painting Soft Construction with Boiled Beans: Premonition of Civil War seems to be not only that humanity is not indestructible, but that it is capable of its own destruction.


INNATE

  • The painting clearly illustrates Dali’s ability to defy reality on canvas. Such an ability can’t, I think, be learned: It must be inborn, or innate.


COMPLIANCE

  • In that disturbing painting, Dali shows compliance, or agreement, with the surrealist belief that feelings and ideas must be expressed.


AXIOM

  • Don’t you think Dali’s painting prove the old axiom “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”?


INANIMATE

  • Of course, Dali's paintings are inanimate objects, yet they are hardly lifeless or spiritless.


PREVALENT

  • Although surrealism was a popular movement in its day, the surrealist style never became prevalent in the art world. It was confined to a small group of artists.


COMPATIBLE

  • Frankly, I have never been compatible with anyone who likes surrealist art, but maybe we can learn to get along.


RECOURSE

  • Perhaps you are my last recourse for help in learning to appreciate surrealist art.


I hope you found the context clues!
