Johannes Vermeer & Salvatore Dalí: The Lacemaker

Johannes Vermeer & Salvatore Dalí: The Lacemaker
¤ Johannes Vermeer: The Lacemaker (1669-1671)
¤ Salvatore Dalí: "paranoiac critical" allusion to Vermeer's The Lacemaker (1958); mirror view.

In 1955, Dalí made a copy of Veermer's work as well as a "rhinocerotic" version and a another "paranoiac critical" version.

In September 2013, artwork from Dalí had been exhibited in the Künstlerhaus in Munich. The exhibits belong to the collection of Richard H. Mayer (Kunstgalerie Böttingerhaus Bamberg). Among the objects also was one of the prints made in 1958. Interestingly, no hint was given that mirroring Dalí's print could help to understand the allusion. Once rendered in mirror view (as shown above on the right side), Dalí's print is not so abstract anymore.
