The Persistence of Falling Back --- Day 5/258

Walk: Presidio
Distance: 3.7, Home Yoga


Salvador Dali (Spanish,1904-1989), The Persistence of Memory, 1931, o/c, 9 1/2" x 12"

One of Ciwt's least favorite paintings to acknowledge one of her least favorite events:  the shift from daylight savings as she sleeps tonight.  Apparently a large number of visitors to New York's MoMA don't agree with Ciwt - about the painting anyway.  It was given to the museum by an anonymous donor in 1934 and since then has been the highlight of their collection since then.
