Take a look into Night-Scene in Figueres

By Salvador Dali, a surrealist artist.

This Portray was produced in 1921. A gouache on board, with its dimensions of 54.9 by 74.1 cm.

This is a painting that i believe is enigmatic. It tells an interesting tale produced up with unique tones of blue, with some yellow and brown to distinguish each individual issue. Dali, may perhaps have been motivated by Picasso’s Blue Period of time from 1901-1904, with the blues existing in his paintings.

The tale I interpret here is that of a lonely musician entertaining persons in a cafe. The musician is playing a cello, with his eyes closed, ignoring the audience, as he is swept absent with the rhythms of his tune. Not a treatment in the world. His expression is that of a gentleman concentrated with actively playing his instrument but also seeking sad or lonely. which is mirrored with the painting remaining in shades of blue. on the other hand, the viewers are captured with his music, searching at him with admiration. Particularly the folks at the entrance tables, stopping what they are undertaking, as they are enamoured by him, pulled into a meditative condition. absolutely unaware of the musician disappointment/loneliness, by means of no fault of their possess. While the lady to the musicians still left, is smiling or laughing, going through whomever is her companion. Yet again most likely unaware of the musician. As she is talking to her companion, possessing a entertaining time.

This portray also reminds me of another portray, which has the use of blue tones. Salvador Dali may well have been impressed by him. This painting is named Aged guitarist by Pablo Picasso. Painted in 1903. It really is an oil on panel, with the dimensions of 1.23 m by 83cm.

This was painted during Picasso’s Blue Time period. This was the period when Picasso’s finest good friend experienced died, so he was frustrated and dwelling in poverty.

It has loads of monochromatic, blue tones that is rendered with a warmer brown colour. When hunting at it the viewer can come to feel a perception of sorrow and grief for the aged guy as he seems lonely mirrored in the blue tones and how the guy is sitting down. The figure curls and huddled all-around the guitar generating him glance cramped within just the body. The guitar that the inadequate gentleman is keeping can propose the only hope in his everyday living or his way of earning revenue busking on the streets of Barcelona.
