This is a museum-quality hand-painted resin sculpture based on Salvador Dali's 1947 masterpiece, "Portrait of Picasso." Created during the Spanish surrealist master's 8-year exile in America, the sculpture is an intriguing example of the artists' relationships with each other.

About the sculpture:

Shocked by the dropping of the atom bomb, Dali took a different mystical turning after the Second World War. He combined this new approach with a fanatical interest in the classical art of painting. One year after painting the Portrait of Picasso he described in his "Fifty magical secrets" how surprised he was that people were able to split a nuclear, "but nobody had any knowledge of the substances and the secret juices in which the brothers Van Eyck or Vermeer from the Dutch town of Delft used to dip their paintbrushes. In 1948 Dali decided, after a very fruitful eight-year-long stay in the United States, to return to Europe to devote himself to "nuclear mysticism" with the expert motto his insight that the "the skillful arts of painting were developed once and forever and with the greatest perfection and influence during the Renaissance and that the decadence of modern art finds its origins in skepticism and a lack of faith, which is a consequence of mechanical materialism. The Period: Dali sublimated his life in his art of painting. Relying on great craftsmanship, acquired in all sorts of art experiments, he lifted surrealism, in an inimitable self-willed manner, to exceptional heights. He photographed, as it were, associatively what was enacted in his mind. Incited by, at the time, new psychological insights he tried to fix his subconscious with images, and to visualize his dreams in all their inscrutable symbolism. It was for this purpose that he developed his famous "paranoid-critical" method. To us, one dimensional mortal souls, only the paintings and other expressions remain as fascinating witnesses to a literally unbelievably intense and active life. Perhaps we are so drawn to them because not only do they allow us to have a look inside Daliís subconscious, but they also are a mirror reflecting our own souls.
