"Between 1923 and 1926 the painter did at least a dozen portraits of his sister Anna Maria, including the two in the Museo Reina Sofía collection, Figura en una finestra (Figure at the Window) and Retrato (Portrait). According to Dalí himself in his book The Secret Life of Salvador Dalí, they contain a certain echo of Picassian Classicism.
Figura en una finestra is perhaps the absolute masterpiece of the series of portraits of Anna Maria. Rafael Santos Torroella stated that the painting is “a marvel for the skill with which it combines the occupied spaces and the empty spaces, giving them equal compositional importance to such an extent that the fact that he has simply eliminated one of the window casements (the left one) escapes the viewer, who does not even notice the anomaly, despite the fact that this is precisely where so much of the enigmatic beauty radiating from the painting, with its pure serenity, resides.
“The portraits that my brother painted of me during this period are innumerable. Many were simple studies of hair and a bare shoulder. He painted patiently and tirelessly, and I never got tired of posing for him because I’ve never been bored by staying still in silence. […] In all the hours that I posed for him, I never tired of looking at the landscape which from then on and forever was a part of me. Indeed Salvador always painted me near a window! And my eyes had time to linger on the tiniest details.” (Paloma Esteban Leal) #dalí#salvadordali#surrealisme#surrealism#fantastic#fantastico #reinasofia#modernart #españa#visions#dream #madrid 🇪🇸 #beniculturali30#kings_alltags#travelgram#ilikespain#topeuropephoto#top_hdr_photo
Apoteket Lejonet, definitely one of the more impressive buildings in Malmö both inside and out. Built in 1896 in a renaissance revival style and designed by architects August Lindvall and Harald Boklund. Today it’s one of four so-called “culture pharmacies” in Sweden, maintained by the government for historical and cultural purposes. 🌆 #malmotown
