Naturaleza muerta, commonly known as Sifón y botella de ron (Siphon and Bottle of Rum), is one of the works which shows most clearly the influence that the various European art movements had on Dalí’s early work, before the artist found his mature style in the context of Surrealism. In this particular case, coexistent within the painting are lessons learnt from Cubism and from Italian Metaphysics, which Dalí and Lorca had access to through the magazine Valori Plastici, regularly read by both while at the Residencia de Estudiantes.
