About this artwork

Salvador Dali, the well known Spanish Surrealist artist, drew inspiration from the Greek myth of Narcissus in his painting 'Metamorphosis of Narcissus'. Narcissus, a beautiful son of a river god, was loved by all, but he was self-obsessed. His vanity led the gods to punish him by making him fall for his own reflection in a pool. Unable to embrace his own reflection, Narcissus faded away, and a narcissus, or daffodil, sprouted in his place. Dali's painting portrays Narcissus kneeling by the pool, next to a statue of a hand cradling a hatching egg from which a narcissus flower grows, reminiscent of his form. The use of double images in this painting was a characteristic of Dali's critical paranoiac period, a unique approach to surrealism where he experimented with optical illusions to unlock the creative power of the subconscious mind.
