Description of the painting by Salvador Dali “Woman at the Window”


In the early works of Salvador Dali there are boyish maximalism. Young men become: more susceptible to the surrounding reality, react more sharply to problems, seek their place in life and much more. Loneliness and some asceticism of decoration are seen in many works.

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

A feature of the picture is the drawing of a woman from the back, who is looking off into the distance, wanting to look beyond the horizon. It acts in a mesmerizing way, attracting and stopping attention. One feels the peace of an ascetic setting, which harmoniously combines with nature from the outside world.

Also, the canvas carries a deep psychological meaning, reflecting the young girl as an unformed personality who, just out of the corner of her eye, looked into a new and unknown world. She is waiting for the changes that she is looking forward to and afraid of. Spectators do not see her face, but everyone can feel her desire to move forward. A room is like an enclosed 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 will be. She stands barefoot on the floor, like a child who feels connected to her parental home.

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