Dali painted this self-portrait during his eight-year-exile in the United States, where he had fled from the Spanish civil war. The, sometimes, childlike enthusiasm and the drive of the American society appealed to Dali and he had a most productive period there. Under this influence he appeared to reverse his “paranoid-critical” method. Now he painted more from the inside out, as his comment on his self-portrait indicates. Dali himself styles his self-portrait as “an anti-psychological self-portrait, instead of painting the soul, or the inner of oneself, to paint solely the appearance, the cover, my soul’s glove. This glove of my soul can be eaten and is even a little sharp, like highbred game; therefor ants appear together with the fried bacon. As the most generous of all painters I continuously offer myself as food and thus give our era the most delicious delicacies.
This sculpture is amazing! When the public visits a museum, they repeatedly visit the same artworks to look at them from a different perspective. This fantastic sculpture offers art lovers the ability to “view” their favorite artwork in their own home, from an entirely different perspective, and in a different dimension: 3D! Have you ever wondered what the artwork looked like from behind the painting? Or from the side? To remind you of your museum experience, each figurine comes with a color card of the original painting, information about the painter and a description of the specific figurine reproduced.
