Salvador Dalí’s Flowers

In 1968 Salvador Dalí took inspiration from the floral artwork of Belgian Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759 – 1840), one of whose paintings you can see below.

This would result in Dalí producing a small series of ten paintings, which offered him a chance to exercise his more humorous side.

Dalí’s added many surreal elements from his imagination which itself took inspiration from the land of his birth, the region of Empordá, Catalunha. The result are some delicious illustrations in which the plants come alive with their spirits from within.
