Spanish artist, painter and sculptor, Salvador Dali is often considered the greatest surrealist artist of the 20th century. He had a sulphurous and an inimitable style and worked to create provocative and spectacular works, which was a reflection of his incredible charisma and creativity. His surrealist inspiration came from the Catalonian Art Nouveau.

One of the most famous sculptures of Dali, “Montre Molles”, is at the forefront of surrealism. It comes from the well-known painting “The Persistence of Memory”, more commonly known as the “Soft Watches”. The watches question us on the insignificance of time, while confronting the hardness and softness of forms. Dali was inspired during a dinner, by the sight of a melting camembert cheese on a tray.

The collaboration between Daum and the celebrated artis began in 1968 with "La Fleur du Mal," his first piece in a long series with the Maison. The translucency of Daum's crystal paste offered Dali the appropriate medium through which to express the metamorphoses suggested to him by his "paranoid and critical" perception of reality.

Each Daum crystal piece is made using the rare and ancient "Pâte de Verre" glassmaking technique, which dates back to 5,000 BC, involves melting many fragments of colored crystal within a mold. This results in intense colors and subtle shading. Handmade in France. Limited edition of 850.

Measures 13½" w x 4¾" d x 18" h.
