The actual title of the painting is "The Persistence of Memory". I too have seen big posters of it, so I was surprised when I saw the original at the Museum of Modern Art -- it's only about 10 inches by 13 inches. It was painted in 1931 and sold for $250. About 20 or 25 years later, Salvador Dali painted a "sequel" entitled "The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory".
