Details: This poster is of The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory, by Salvador Dali. It shows a re-creation of the artist's famous 1931 work The Persistence of Memory. In this version, the landscape from the original work has been flooded with water. Disintegration depicts what is occurring both above and below the water's surface. The plane and block from the original is now divided into brick-like shapes that float in relation to each other, with nothing binding them, the tree from which the soft watch hangs being similarly segmented.
