Tristan and Isolde

Salvador Dalí
FRAMED Dimensions:
31" x 35"
Engraving with color
In pencil

In The Camp of King Marc, Dalí shows Tristan riding into his camp to surrender, arms wide and legs spread in complete capitulation. The large and now broken stone sits next to him to symbolize the loss of his future and the two beans and loaf of bread upon the stone symbolize his bleak prospects. King Marc’s encampment is drawn in swirls which symbolize a powerful future while Tristan is now only partially shown in swirls since he has lost much of his power. Between the two we find the remnants of a flower stalk. The flower is gone – the very symbol for Isolde has lost its bloom. The covered entrance to the tent of King Marc is held up by Dalí’s crutches to remind us that any potential for mercy shown to Tristan is flimsy, at best.
