Daddy Longlegs of the Evening - Hope! Poster


'Daddy Longlegs of the Evening - Hope!' (1940)

This was the first painting that our founders, Mr. and Mrs. Morse, purchased for our collection in 1943. It is a commentary on the horror of World War II, and prophetic of the role air power was to play in the war. According to an old French peasant legend, a daddy longlegs seen at evening is a symbol of good luck. So Dali still offers hope in spite of the painting's bleak atmosphere.
