Salvador Dali loved attending bullfights, and he turned to this traditional Spanish subject matter in his art. Here in Black Bullfighter, Dali summarizes the entire bullfight by showing the matador’s inevitable and heroic victory. Executed in a singular black hue, the matador confidently stands tall and triumphant, as he towers over the mortally wounded bull that bows in defeat.
