Both Dali’s and Chagall’s art works were prepared after the World War II. Both works of art also were made to symbolize something. This means that the works had a hidden meaning that the artists wanted to pass to the people. As for Dali, the main message that the artist wanted to communicate to the people is about the irrelevance of time. The drooping pocket watches generally mean that time is not relevant when an individual is asleep since such an individual is in a subconscious state. On the other hand, Juggler of Paris by Chagall is made mainly to symbolize how the creation is beautifully made. It generally describes the creation.
In both arts of work, subjectivity about the world is demonstrated by the two artists. It seems that the two artists view the world and life differently. Dali seems to be a pessimist according to the interpretation of persistence of memory work of art. The drooping pocket watch shows how time lived by human being is irrelevant as at the end people die. In addition, one of the elements in the work shows a fish that is starving after it has been removed from water. This shows difficulties people face. On the other hand, Chagall demonstrates optimism in the work ‘Juggler of Paris’. This is considering the fact that he demonstrates good things in the creation of God and how wonderful the creatures in the world are.
The colors used in the two works of art are very different. In the first place, Dali uses blue, yellow and faint brown in the art work ‘persistence of memory’. On the other hand, Chagall uses the colors, blue, red, green and yellow. This shows that the two artists used different colors in their works.
Chagall and Dali used different styles in their arts of work. In the ‘persistence of memory’ by Dali, the style used is called surrealism while in the ‘Juggler of Paris’ by Chagall uses two styles; expressionism and cubism. The two arts of work are also different in that Dali’s work represents items that are usually not found in the real world for example, melting watches cannot be found in the real world. In contrast, Chagall has painted things that are real and can be found in the creation of God. Dali generally used the dreams he had to come up with his art of work. Therefore subconscious mind worked to help Dali come up with the work persistence of memory. On the other hand, Juggler of Paris by Chagall was made from subconscious mind in that the real items that the artist used to see is what made him come up with the art of work.
Another difference between the two works is that Chagall uses items that are usually present in his other items of work. Therefore the work of art shows that Chagall was rigid in the items he used to come up with his work. In contrast, Dali uses new items that are different from his previous and future works of art. This shows that the artist is not rigid on what he uses in his art work.
