Description

This work is believed to be the artist’s earliest surviving painting, produced when Dalí was between six and ten years old. Dalí’s subjects in those early years is the landscapes and buildings in and around Figueres and Cadaqués, Spain. In the 1994 catalog, Dali: the Early Years, Ian Gibson makes this observation, “His earliest known pictures-several tiny watercolors of the Empordá countryside near Figueres…they reveal an acute sensitivity to nature-meadows, sky, animals, mountains, water...”

Landscape depicts an area near Dalí’s birthplace of Figueres. The artist, using a rather sophisticated color palette, depicts the rich greens of the foliage in the foreground with vivid pink roofed buildings in the distance. Shadowy mountains rise in the background framing this typical village scene. The sky is thinly painted revealing a blank postcard with a checkered corner design. This small painting measures only 5-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches.

Landscape was formally in the collection Gala’s first husband, Paul Éluard, the French Surrealist poet. The Dalí Museum acquired it through a bequest from late Albert Field (New York), Dalí’s “unofficial” archivist.
