The girl at the window by Salvador Dali

The girl at the window by Salvador Dali

In the early works of Salvador Dali there is boyish maximalism. Boys become: more receptive to the surrounding reality, react more sharply to problems, look for their place in life and much more. Loneliness and some asceticism of decoration are seen in many works.

The painting “The Girl at the Window” is one of the artist’s best works in the early stages of creativity. The model for the canvas was Anna Maria, who for a long time looked after Dali and remained his muse.

A special feature of the picture can be called drawing a woman from the back, which looks somewhere in the distance, wanting to look beyond the horizon. It acts hypnotically, attracting and stopping attention. Feels the peace of the ascetic situation, which harmoniously combines with nature from the outside world.

Also, the canvas carries a profound psychological meaning, reflecting the young girl as an unformed person who only glanced into the new and unexplored world. She is waiting for changes, which she is looking forward to and afraid. The audience does not see her face, but everyone can feel her desire to move forward.

The room is like a closed world that she wants to expand. The absence of objects is the beginning of knowledge and the accumulation of experience. The more a girl learns, the more filled the room becomes. She stands barefoot on the floor, like a child who feels connected to her parents’ house.

It is no accident that the window overlooks the sea, symbolizing freedom and determination. But there is always a negative part like unpredictability, the riot of waves. So life will be uncertain, with its ups and downs. The port of the city of Cadaques opens the possibility not only to go to its native land, but also allows you to go on an endless journey to other countries.
