"The day when people take my work seriously, they will realize that my painting is like an iceberg, which only shows a tenth of itself above water." ~ Salvador Dalí. This quintessential (and most counterfeited painting) by Dalí, 'Lincoln in Dalivision', is a master of his optical illusion. Up close, you see his wife and muse, Gala, looking out a window, along with a number of other different images. Twenty feet back, it is none other than Abraham Lincoln. The most common interpretation of this piece is that it represents life and death, with Gala's beauty of life balanced with the harsh mortality of the assassinated president. It is one of many favourites that we encountered at the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres (not quite as interesting for me as his "Soft Self-Portrait with Grilled Bacon", but iconic nonetheless). ~~ Dalene . . . . . #hosted #incostabrava #inpyrenees #figueres #bestdestinations #resourcetravel #yahootravel #buzzfeedtravel #bbctravel #traveldeeper #travelunscripted #worldoftravel #igrefined #welivetoexplore #optoutside #discoverearth #neverstopexploring #natgeotravel #salvadordali #natgeotravelpic
