Sunday Dalí: The Meeting of the Illusion and the Arrested Moment: Fried Eggs Presented in a Spoon, 1932. Oil on canvas, 23 x 15 cm. Private collection.
As I explained in an earlier post:
Dalí said that one day, after rubbing his eyes, he became fascinated with the brilliant yellow, orange, and ochre colors he saw. As a result, he says, he had a flashback to his mother’s womb, and created this paranoiac-critical explanation of the experience.
Here we can see a shrouded woman, representing Dalí’s mother, pregnant with the unborn Salvador. The title clearly explains that this is a paranoiac-critical interpretation of the experience of the unborn Dalí.
