Title:Geopoliticus Child Watching the Birth of the New Man By:Salvador Dalí Date:1943 Place:Spain
The painting was done during Dalí’s stay in the United States during 1940 to 1948. It is said to be one of the most recognisable paintings by him. It is of a man scrambling out of an egg while a mother and her son watch, pointing (this part of the painting is not depicted in the 3D model). The “new” man pushes his way out of the large egg/globe in the center. He is emerging out of the “new” nation/world power, the United States, Dalí’s temporary home at the time. The enlargement of Africa and South America represents the growing importance of the Third World, and the draped cloth represents the placenta (odd mix of reptile/bird and mammal). An androgynous figure points to the emerging “new man,” showing the cowering “geopoliticus child” the new historical period he will represent.
The painting is commonly thought to depict the change in the world America would bring at the end of World War II.
