A Blossoming Fragmentation of Reality


Salvador Dali’s Rose Meditative is a profound modern painting that illuminates numerous elements of modernism. Lacking an entire stem, a large rose dominates the landscape as an isolated, mysterious object. This provocative, modern aspect of the painting catches the eye of the interpreter, and foreshadows possible allegory. The harsh landscape under the rose additionally displays a couple holding hands, subtly reflecting the modern element of isolation and loneliness. The flamboyant rose floats above the couple, further providing the interpreter with a sense of higher power that transcends religion and fixates on love. This intense work of art by Salvador Dali ultimately represents the profound significance in Modernism and contributed to unprecedented 20th century art.
