Valazquez Painting the Infanta Margarita with the Lights and Shadows of His Own Glory
(1958)
Oil on canvas
60 1/2 x 36 1/4 inches

This work is Dali's interpretation of Velzquez's Infanta painting, and the young girl is shown in a clearly divisionist's perspective in the upper center portion of the painting. Rather than being destructive in nature, the viewer should learn to think of Dali's divisionist's objects as being creative in nature. In other words, rather than viewing the objects as exploding or even imploding, the viewer should see them as being in the act of creation, or coming together.
