The subject of The Enigma of Hitler coincides in part with that of another painting that Dalí had done the previous year in 1938: Violetas imperials (Imperial Violets). Paradoxically, although the central motif in both compositions is a telephone receiver, their contents differ absolutely, given that, as Dalí himself said, the title of the 1938 painting comes from the title of a film starring the American tenor and actor Mario Lanza.
