This is a painting by Salvador Dali called The Elephants. Dali used his imagination for most of his paintings, as well as using memories from his childhood as the backgrounds. The background of this painting is a gradient, which goes from yellow at the horizon to red at the top. There aren't many colors used in this specific painting, but it gives off a warm mood from the reds and yellows. The elephants have extremely long legs, whereas their bodies are fat. There are also human like figures in the foreground. The detail is mainly focused on the elephants, with not much detail put into anything else. Although, the figures at the bottom have shadows being cast from them.
