Ronsard Woman with a Page Boy is from Les Amours De Cassandre by Ronsard Suite which explores the favorite themes of the famous poet and humanist from the French Renaissance. Love, death, and the passing of time, expressed with much refinement and harmony in their association with the cycles of nature, remind us of our vulnerability.
Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain. From an early age Dalí was encouraged to practice his art, and he would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miró, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. Dalí died in Figueres in 1989.
