Salvador Dalí. The Meditative Rose. Oil on canvas. 1958
I chose this painting because I like the colors and the placement of the items in the painting. The large red rose, placed in the sky of light blue. The bottom of the painting is a light brown with a two small figures to the right. I also find the simple droplet of water on the rose interesting. It’s almost as though the rose is setting instead of the sun. I also found this picture interesting because it is one of Dali’s calmer paintings. While it is still surreal, it seems to make sense as opposed to some of his other paintings.
