This Cadavre exquis (Exquisite Cadaver) was probably done at Salvador Dalí’s house in Port Lligat in the 1930s, a time when the artist had become a spokesman for the basic principles of the movement, and the intermediary between the French and Spanish groups. His residence was seen at that time as a focus of orthodox Surrealism. The considerable number of “exquisite cadavers” still preserved from this period shows the atmosphere of collaboration that existed between Dalí and his wife Gala and other members of the group such as Valentine Hugo and André Breton, to whom this work belonged.
