In a 1949 publication, Anna Maria Dalí, represented once more in this 1925 Portrait from the Museo Reina Sofía collection, looked back on the long modelling sessions she did for the artist: “The portraits that my brother painted of me during this period are innumerable. Many were simple studies of hair and a bare shoulder. He painted patiently and tirelessly, and I never got tired of posing for him because I’ve never been bored by staying still in silence. […] In all the hours that I posed for him, I never tired of looking at the landscape which from then on and forever was a part of me. Indeed Salvador always painted me near a window! And my eyes had time to linger on the tiniest details.”
