Salvador Dali -“The Persistence of Memory”

“The Persistence of Memory” used to be on display at the Salvador Dalí Museum, in St. Petersburg, Florida, (1 February–1 June 2008). Unfortunately I wasn’t able to see it in person. I was scheduled to go see it but circumstances changed that.

It’s been owned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1934. “The Persistence of Memory” returned to the Museum of Modern Art in June 2008 as part of the exhibition Dalí and Film, on view from 29 June – 15 September 2008.

It was said that Dali used ants in his artwork to symbolize decay. This has always been one of my favorite paintings by him. And to me it symbolizes the passing of time and decay and how time waits for no one.
