An art history deep dive on Salvador Dali’s “The Persistence of Memory” currently at The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City.

It has been a model of Surrealist art due to Dalí’s ability to paint familiar objects in an unfamiliar way; he evokes confusion, fear, and discomfort, yet we can’t help but look. Almost a century later, this piece remains a portrait of Dalí’s uncompromising vision.
