Invisible Afghan with the Apparition on the Beach of the Face of Garcia Lorca in the Form of a Fruit Dish with Three Figs, 1938.

When Dalí painted this portrait of Lorca, Lorca had been dead for two years. That might explain the ghost quality of his face.

The afghan, the woman from Millet’s Angelus on the right, the cup holding the pears that are the mountain behind, all that and more I may have missed, I don’t even try to explain. That is pure Dalí.
