This 1945 work 'Broken Bridge and the Dream' is representative of paintings from Dali's classic period and was painted with an oil technique known as glazing to create a muted and dreamlike finish. This technique was used by European Old Masters whom Dali emulated during this period, indicating his allegiance to the artistic traditions of the Baroque period. In the painting, a ruined bridge becomes a stairway for angelic, fanciful figures to drift upwards into the heavens. Measures 14 inches x 11 inches, including matting. Ready to frame.
