Salvadore Dali

Madrid for kids

Dali became famous for images within images.  This was like the Renaissance painter Archimboldo.
Dali's The Invisible Man, 1939
contains a secret image composed from objects in the landscape.
  • Can you see the seated man?
  • What are his legs made from? What forms his eyes?

  • This work, by Giuseppe Arcimboldo, was painted during the Renaissance, 500 years ago.  He made images out of unexpected objects and they could be viewed as a collection of objects or as a face for instance

    The sunset clouds form what part of the man?
    His forehead is formed from what?
    I guess he was doing what we sometimes do when we look at the sky and imagine we see all sorts of things formed among the clouds.
