Week Thirty-Four: War

Presently, War conveys deeper and more intimate meanings than any other period in our brief lifetimes. Politics, families, and lives have changed drastically in the last few years and innumerable times throughout history.

And when we think of pretentious art pertaining to war, we think of this piece. Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonition of Civil War), by the famous Salvador Dali, is his take on the destruction and prosperity that emerges from war, particularly his nation's civil war of the early 20th century. Yep, nice and pretentious.

While you may not support the war, be sure to support the troops and veterans:
