Overview of the painting :
Architects “Angelus” Millet – Salvador Dali. 1933
In 1933, Salvador Dali created the work of the Architectonic Angelus Millet, (Purls Gallery, New York) – a free interpretation of the work of the French painter Jean-Francois Millet “Angelus”.
Ana Maria in her memoirs said that the reproduction of this picture hung in the classroom of young Dali and always attracted his attention. The original depicts peasant spouses who bowed their heads in evening prayer to ring the bells. Prayer begins with the words “Angelas Domini” – “Angel of the Lord”, hence the name of the canvas of the Frenchman. However, Dali’s deep spiritual principle of Angelus is replaced by erotic motifs.
