The Persistence of Memory Salvador Dali, 1931, Surrealism Expressed his dreams (thus, subconscious) through art. Time (watch) appears to have stopped for the tree and creature, which should have life. The melting watches might show that time is slipping away, running out. The watch with hidden time is being eate
Number 1 Jackson Pollock, 1949, Abstract Expressionism Whereas objective art restrained the soul, letting the mind take over, non-objective art freed the spirit and emotions. Pollock laid canvas on the floor and flung layers of paint. Influenced by Indian sand art, where they made designs onto the support whi
Gold Marilyn Monroe Andy Warhol, 1962, Pop Art Subject is pop culture, it has influence over our daily lives.
