The canvas “The Way of the Enigma” by Salvador Dali is one of a series of paintings under the general title “The Last Role” that were created several decades until the death of the author.
Due to age, it was difficult to write, but it was these last paintings that began to be perceived by art lovers in a completely different way. To the individual style of Dali, even more imagination and unusualness was added. Surrealism in his work has acquired the scale of the grotesque.
"The Way of the Enigma" is an unusual canvas filled with deep philosophical meaning, one’s own thoughts about the artist’s life.
All the paintings of Salvador Dali are interesting in that each observer finds in them something of their own, almost intimate. However, not every layman is able to appreciate the true artistic value of the paintings of the author. They annoy some, press on the plot with someone.
One thing remains reliably accurate: Dali’s paintings cannot leave anyone indifferent.
Back in 1928, the artist wrote stories similar to The Way of the Riddle. This determines the characteristic cycle in the work of Salvador Dali, which is also observed in other works throughout his life.
"The Way of the Riddle" - the mysterious road "to nowhere", illuminated by the tempting moonlight, accompanied by an incredible number of bags hanging over the surface of the water. In bags, grains of knowledge are answers to life's mysteries. The road itself is the life of the author, which ends beyond the horizon. And perhaps it does not end at all. Who knows?
It is known that Dali, drawing the last picture in his earthly life, dreamed of writing another large series of paintings. In them, he wanted to portray his dreams, infinity, immortality of the soul and confused reality, inspired by the author’s grave illness at the end of his mysterious journey.
Another of the great artist’s oddities happened after his death: according to his will, the author’s body is not interred and rests in a crypt.
