Les Amours De Cassandre by Ronsard: Couple with Candle

Salvador Dali – Pierre Argillet Collection

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 as mortal beings. Dali illustrates this sentiment in Couple with Candle by portraying the bride as a veiled faceless figure – potentially representing the ghost of his late wife.

[expand title=”Information on Les Amours De Cassandre by Ronsard and the Pierre Argillet Collection”]

Pierre de Ronsard, Renaissance poet to royalty, is the author of Les Amours de Cassandre. After years at court he turned his attention to scholarly studies, focusing on his great love of the Greek and Roman classics, and is often depicted in a toga and laurel wreath.

In his rendition of Les Amours de Cassandre, Dali illustrates the favorite themes of the famous poet and humanist from the French Renaissance. His wonderful portrait of de Ronsard, wearing a toga and a wreath of a laurel, is a humorous reminder of the “carpe diem: of Epicurus.” 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 as mortal beings. in L;Art Poetique, de Ronsard compared poetry with paintings: “the eat is the judge of the structure of verse, while the eye is the judge of the brushstrokes.” Intuitively, he had opened the way to a Dalianian interpretation.

The Argillet Collection of Salvador Dali Drawings and Original Etchings is a collaboration between Surrealist Salvador Dali and art collector and publisher Pierre Argillet. This collection demonstrates the highest standards of quality, superb draftsmanship, and artisanship. As a result, this body of work is possibly the finest work produced by Dali during his career. Between 1934 and 1974, the two men subsequently created and published nearly 200 works. Ultimately, many of which have been displayed in some of the best known museums around the world.
