The title of this piece may sounds familiar, Las Meninas, that is because this piece painted in 1976 plays on the fact the original contained multiple views of other pieces within it. Notice the original floats far off in the distance, while the shadow of Gala from many of Dali’s other works sits in the foreground.

Full stop! The blog is going to shift gears for a few days and will feature the art of Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marquis of Dalí de Púbol (Salvador Dalí.)

As a break from the photography I thought I’d post the 3D results of combining the two panels of each piece. Be prepared for man who said he was a drug himself: Dalí.
