Surrealism

Page 14: Self- Portraits

Where do we see symbolism?• Kahlo was influenced by indigenous Mexican culture, which is apparent in

her use of bright colors and dramatic symbolism. She frequently included the symbolic monkey.

• She combined elements of the classic religious Mexican tradition with surrealist renderings.

Salvador Dali

Page 17: Self- Portraits

Where do we see symbolism?• Dalí employed extensive symbolism in his work. For instance, the hallmark "soft watches" that first appear

in The Persistence of Memory suggest Einstein's theory that time is relative and not fixed.• The idea for clocks functioning symbolically in this way came to Dalí when he was staring at a runny piece

of Camembert cheese on a hot day in august.

Andy Warhol

Page 23: Self- Portraits

When Warhol first exhibited these thirty–two canvases in 1962, each one simultaneously hung from the wall like a painting and rested on a shelf like groceries in a store. The number of canvases corresponds to the varieties of soup then sold by the Campbell Soup Company. Warhol assigned a different

flavor to each painting, referring to a product list supplied by Campbell's. There is no evidence that Warhol envisioned the canvases in a particular sequence. Here, they are arranged in rows that reflect the chronological order in which they were introduced, beginning with "Tomato" in the upper left,

which debuted in 1897.
