The magnificent ‘Tuna Fishing’: is it even a landscape?
Late period Dali is for me his best period, there is something about the light and precision that is magical. Dali was 62 when he started it, in 1966 or thereabouts, long past his enfant terrible phases of blatant attention seeking.
Tuna Fishing is a huge painting (3 x 4 metres), and is, for a two dimensional piece, one of the most dynamic works of art you could see.
Hard to know quite why he did it, but this excellent fan piece goes some way to explaining it.
