'Three Young Surrealist Women Holding in Their Arms the Skins of an Orchestra' (1936)
In this surreal landscape, Dali depicts the sandy beach and black cliffs of Cape Creus in his beloved Catalonian homeland. He has transformed the heads of three maidens into bouquets of roses, associated with classical beauty and female sexuality. The sophisticated elegance of these women also reflects the impact of fashion design on Dali's work. The soft piano and violin cello refer to his belief that music is fleeting and fluid compared to the visual arts which present absolute images.
