"The Basket of Bread, 1926", Oil by Salvador Dali (1904-1989, Spain)
The Basket of Bread (1926) is a painting by Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí. The painting depicts four pieces of bread with butter on them sitting in a basket. One is separated from the others and is half-bitten. The basket sits on a white cloth. The painting resides at the Salvador Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, Fl. The painting was completed in 1926 when Dalí was twenty-two years old, shortly after he had finished his formal art class in Madrid where he was studying the Dutch Masters. The painting is not to be confused with Dalí's 1945 painting Basket of Bread.
