    Very interesting. I’ve seen this painting before, but I never noticed the extremely tall crutch to the far right of the painting. If this is a complete reproduction, I wonder what the artist was using it for — a simple mechanism to crop the eye to the left side of the canvas? Or something more.

    All I know is I enjoy the expression on the “sleeper’s” face. Reminds me of how I feel when the alarm clock goes off.
    leafless: Actually the extreme tall crutch was in the original painting as well. Of course, the original painting is rarely seen nowadays. It is in a secure vault somewhere.

    the symbolism is what catches me the most…I agree with darcknyt about the” oh my goodness it’s time to get up look”…Zman sends

    it’s interesting. The facial expression tells tat the person is in deep sleep. And it’s really creative to use clutches to depict how fragile one’s sleep is.

  • sugali says:

    The artist had captured and depicted the state of sleep with clarity. It denotes how fragile sleep can be.

  • spellspy says:

    The ‘caricature in surgery’; i relish lookiing at it again, as the crutches sleeping, as and as the pleasures of beign pierced; a daliesuqe marvel is a beautiful characterization of naturalism, precise and detailed, and its distortion to amplify the pure aesthetic of sub-conscious and the carnival. What perferction of proportion and distortion, perfectly rational and preposterously Freudian.

    I am renewing my memories on Dali’s Diary.

    very colorful well thought out painting because the lips and eye look as if he is about to wake into a fragile world of reality from this illusion of his dreams.
