Joining in the sadomasochistic game suggested by the text from Sacher Masoch, Salvador Dali often portrayed himself as a man, a woman or a hermaphrodite, either in pain or inflicting pain, in a setting where Eros and Thanatos are laughing at each other.
A major, powerful work, where Dali’s freedom of line and thought are best expressed.
