The Erotic World of Salvador Dali

It seems hard to believe that Playboy magazine was the chosen reading material by the elegant man of the 50s and 60s. However, back then, it was a periodical that embraced the contributions of writers and prestigious artists.

In 1974, Salvador Dalí collaborated with the photographer Pompeo Posar in some images for the magazine. These pictures were published under the title “The Erotic World of Salvador Dali”.

Sexuality started becoming more and more visible in the 20s and Dali committed himself to exposing the underlying meaning of sexual desire. Many of his artworks deal with Freud’s theories of sex as the motivator and conditioning factor of the individual’s personality. He was obsessed with nudity, sexual repression and the signs of sexuality in the human subconscious. His creations were loaded with symbols and signs of those fascinations and fantasies.

 

When he became a well-known artist, he started collaborating in commercial projects. In his work for Playboy magazine, he was able to portray the surrealistic erotica through a mythical, wild and strange fantasy enacted by several beautiful women. Actually, he stated that, as many other artworks of his, this collaboration was impulsed by “the purest” motivation, that is, money.

The truth is Salvador Dali’s business depended on the sexual transgression of society, on trying to provoke people with his work.

He was taken as an insane artist in his times (and he may have also been labelled like that in ours). Anyways, we still find his life and work absolutely inspiring. Long life, Salvador Dali!
