Archeological Reminiscence of Millet's Angelus
(1933-35)
Oil on panel
12 1/2 x 15 1/2 inches

Millet's Angelus painting had a profound impact on Salvador Dali. He had first seen the work as a child in school, but in 1932, he has a series of experiences that led him to have several paranoid critical transformations on the subject.

Their heads are bowed reverently, and there is a wheelbarrow between them, with field scenery stretching out behind them.
