Dalí had an incredible mathematicians mind and has often been compared to Leonardo da Vinci for his all-encompassing intellect and knowledge over an incredible array of subjects. ‘Galatea of the spheres,’ is an example of how molecular structure is transformed by an artist into a visual parody, mimicking aesthetically the structure of DNA. It represents his interest in science and theories for the disintegration of the atom. The structure of DNA fascinated Dalí and like all enquiring minds, he set to work implementing it in his art; he created this artwork during his ‘nuclear mysticism’ period’. It is in effect an abstract portrait of his wife, Gala, her face is visible, created from disconnected spheres, the axis of the canvas disappearing in the distance creating the illusion of three dimensions. This 1952 oil on canvas painting is a loving and honorable tribute to his wife and muse Gala. Galatea is a name from Greek mythology, which alludes to the story of Pygmalion. Pygmalion creates a sculpture and he then falls in love with it. Dalí often referred to his wife Gala by a series of nicknames, Galatea being one of them.
