Art I Like: Dali's Royal Heart

I have never been interested in Dali's paintings. I find it too difficult to objectively look at or think about his melting clocks and weird worlds. Because that type of imagery has been regurgitated by popular culture and championed by simple minds, I think Dali's concept has been lost, as if in a game of chinese whispers.

His bejeweled objects have not had to suffer the same fate and so, I can look at them without the haze of other people's opinions... and I think they are spectacular. They are a prequel to recent art history (Damien Hirst's skull) and sure as as ever, I love a good art history clairvoyance reference.
