Work on the painting "Loneliness" continued for several months. In 1931, she was presented at an exhibition in honor of the creative activity of Salvador Dali. This picture has a rich biography, it was in the hands of a private owner who bought it incognito from the hands of Dali himself, was in the Museum of Spain, and then got into the Salvador Dali Museum, where he is currently located.
From the biography of the artist himself, it is known that the feeling of loneliness has never been inherent in the creator of all time. The painting was created as a mockery of the artist’s own life. The painting "loneliness" is shrouded in a halo of mystery and mystery. In other matters, like most of the artist’s works. Nobody has yet managed to fully reveal the whole idea of the artist, which he incorporated in the picture.
The huge blue sea, depicted in the picture, is a kind of endless background for the protruding lonely rock. The mood of the picture leads to thoughts of loneliness, a yellow-gray sky with gloomy tones, a sad figure of a man, a carefree blue ocean.
In his painting, Salvador Dali very interestingly depicted a human figure. Who is this? Man or woman? The lack of clarity of understanding makes us think even more about the meaninglessness of the mortal world. All are equal before loneliness. All are equal before the infinity of the blue ocean.
The human figure, as if carved from a sea rock, because it is part of the stone block itself. A man is half naked, with his naked side open to the ocean, trusting him with his secrets, but with each new day he becomes more and more part of a gray gloomy rock ...
The painting loneliness is depicted on canvas with oil paints; the original size of the painting is about 53 cm in length.
The creativity of Salvador Dali is considered to be “amateur”, not everyone can understand the essence of his paintings, his thoughts, is there any sense in his paintings, or is it just an impulse of the creator - a genius. And the more people try to understand this, the more mysterious and mysterious the paintings and the soul of the artist become.
