Cadaques

Date: 1923
Material Used: Oil on canvas
Size: 38 x 50 inches

Created during a break from his second year of art school in Madrid, this painting captures the idyllic, pastoral quality of Cadaqués, a secluded village far from the city. This region of rugged Spanish terrain, located in the northeastern province of Catalonia, is where Dali thereafter would spend most of his life.

To those familiar with the unsettling exactness of Dali’s Surrealist paintings, Cadaqués may come as a surprise. The landscape is presented in a minimal style of curves and cubes, with a series of gently rolling hills and terraced paths cradling the small angular buildings strewn around the bay.

The wind-swept olive trees form a gentle setting for the young women in the foreground. They strike restful poses – reclining, braiding hair, playing with a dog – and their casual behavior reinforces the serenity of the landscape. Dali’s younger sister Ana Maria was the model for each ofthe figures in the work, creating a unified look. By repeating the curves of the landscape in the curves of the women, Dali suggests a close connection between the land and the people.

Except for his eight years in exile during World War II, Dali lived is this part of Spain his entire life, always returning after his annual visits to America and France.
