Description

Figueres is located inland from the Costa Brava in an area called the Empordà at the foot of the Pyrenees near the French border. The landscape in this region was to be a major influence and inspiration to Dalí throughout his artistic career. The seemingly endless plain that surrounds Figueres, the distant horizon, the white beaches of Rosas, and the rugged cliffs of the Albares Mountains recur in every period of Dalí’s work.

In the summers of Dalí’s youth, the family often retreated to their residence in the nearby coastal town. This is an expansive view of Cadaqués from the rock terraces above the Dalí family home. The dynamic composition of this work about his homeland uses a traditional form to establish the subject’s tranquillity. The balloon rising above the landscape and the tiny white sailboat on the expansive bay below create a feeling of lightness and space.

If these seven young women appear similar to one another, it is because Dalí used his sister, Anna Maria (1908–1990), as the model for all of them. She was Dalí’s only sibling and was his primary model in the years before he met his future wife, Gala, in 1929.
