First Days of Spring (1929) Salvador Dali This was indeed Dali's launch into the world of the surrealists. #Dali was never a good or disciplined student and had been thrown out of many a school yet if "the First days of Spring" were a exam Dali more than exceeded his goals. The painting dissects the artists life with the help of Sigmund Freud's "The Interpretation of Dreams". Dali reveals many of his innermost fears , fantasies and phobias ....... Of the most fascinating of any of Dali's works... #Дали By : John Barous 2015 © #WhereisSalvadorDali Docent, The Salvador Dali Museum, Saint Petersburg, FL. (1996-2011)

sixpenceee:Chand Baori located in India

Chand Baori located in India. It is one of the oldest stepwell in India, and is considered to be among the biggest in the world. Built during the 8th and 9th century it provided the surrounding areas with a dependable water source for centuries. The green water at the base of the well is no longer in use.

Allegory of the Arts

Allegory of the Arts. Hans Rottenhammer (German, 1564-1625). Oil on copper. Staatliche Museen, Berlin.

Copper was a popular painting support in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, and it was used for this Allegory. Pictura is inspired by her beautiful model (Venus), as Architecture devises a centrally planned château-fort; Poetry writes and Music strums the lute. Faintly in the manner of Veronese, this cheerily erotic tableau is typical of international Mannerism.
