Sports – Sold
In only a few confident and quick strokes, Salvador Dali captured the great moments which inspire men to athletically compete. He captured these heroic moments through three figures which are dynamically moving like acrobats – one man lunges to throw a javelin, another skids across the floor on his side, while a third falls to his knees. These great acts unfold in a strange and mysterious arena, perhaps it is a surreal floating race track. The strange landscape puts the athletes in a dreamscape – the hallmark of Dali’s work.
