Describing a 1917 production of Jean Cocteau�s ballet �Parade�, which featured both the music of Erik Satie and stage designs of Pablo Picasso, Apollonaire claimed that the performance revealed a truth beyond the real, �a kind of sur-realism�. From the mid 1920s, many Surrealist artists, including most notably Max Ernst, Salvador Dali, and Rene Magritte, produced �dream paintings�, works either based directly upon dreams experienced by the artist, or which alluded to the condition of dreaming. Roland Penrose, soon after the defeat of France, was mobilized as an instructor of camouflage. He taught young recruits to smear their faces with cow dung so they would not be seen by the enemy. He was also asked to try out an ointment which was greenish that was made by a cosmetics firm. He covered his friends body in it, who then could not be seen against the landscape.

There many images in the painting. I think if you look at the painting from far away it simply looks like Dali just painted the same thing twice, although the two sides are similar, I think they are nothing alike.

I think there is a display of life from death as the ants make their home on the dead hand. To the right of this is a starving dog eating fresh meat. Behind this is a chessboard with a man standing on top looking around the landscape, and even further at the back there are mountains with the again repeated shape just hiding behind them In both �Seeing is Believing - The Invisible Isle� and �Metamorphosis of Narcissus�, water is a strong element, and whereas Dali�s water is quite detailed and you are unable to see the brushstrokes, Penrose�s brushstrokes are quite visible and more blurred than detailed. Another feature in both paintings is a hand. In Dali�s painting the hand to me gives the impression of being decayed because it is blue. ...read more.
