The Temptation of St. Anthony by Salvador Dalí

The Temptation of St. Anthony by Salvador Dalí (1946). This work began Dalí’s classical period or the “Dalí Renaissance.”
It was an entry to a 1946 contest held by the David L. Loew-Albert Lewin film production company requiring a painting on the theme of the temptation of Saint Anthony, with the winner to be used in the film The Private Affairs of Bel Ami. Dalí did not win.
