The Ghost of Vermeer of Delft Which Can Be Used as a Table
Oil on panel
7 1/8 x 5 1/2 inches

Completed in 1934, and now owned by the Salvador Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, FL. The scene is set in a narrow lane of Port Ligat, and shows an animate object, the man, transforming, or morphing into an inanimate object, the table. It is an obvious reference to the paintings of Jan Vermeer whom Dali greatly admired. It is a fine example of one of Dali's hand painted dream photographs, often created by his Paranoiac Critical Method , which is so uniquely Dalinian.
