Jo's Art History Podcast

Feb 22 2022 • 57 mins

Welcome back to Jo’s Art History Podcast!

This week I am joined by British artist, Cherish Marshall, who will be sharing her love of all things Salvador Dali!

Dali is now an iconic artist whose art seems to have worked its way into the fabric of our everyday living. Much like artists like Van Gogh, Dali is associated with certain items - such as melting clocks & surrealist landscapes - yet there is so much more to this great man!

Cherish talks about 4 lesser-known works from the great artist and discusses beautifully why there is so much more to Dali than melting clocks and giant elephants!!!

We discuss his ‘Jeremy Kyle’ levels of family up-bring, his love of bread, a late in life finding of religion, his money-making mentality and just what role he played in one of today’s biggest sweet brands - Chupa Chups!!!

Another great episode and guest! I learned a lot in this episode and I’m sure you will too!

Love, Jo xx

Bedroom of Bread -

“Bread,” wrote Salvador Dalí in 1945, “has always been one of the oldest fetishistic and obsessive subjects in my work, the one to which I have remained the most faithful. ‘
