Sunday Dalí: The Great Paranoiac, 1936. Oil on canvas, 62 x 62 cm. Museum Boymans van Beuningen Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Dalí said about this painting:
This face formed with people from the Ampurdan, who are the greatest paranoiacs, was painted after having a conversation about Arcimboldo with Jose Maria Sert.1
It’s easy to see the paranoiac-critical faces made of the Ampurdan people. In fact, I find it harder to not see the faces; but, when you do that, you can grasp the painting. Although all of these bodies create two faces in a landscape, none of the people’s faces are visible.
