Description

The poster is a reproduction print after Salvador Dal's lithograph Lincoln in Dalivision. The work features Dal's rendering of Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea which at Twenty Meters Becomes the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln-Homage to Rothko. At first glance, the artwork appears to be a woman, Gala, standing before a cruciform window. However, when viewed from afar it becomes a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. The poster is enclosed in a black frame under glass with hanging teeth at the back.
