The Dali Gallery

The oil on panel, Apparatus and Hand, from 1927 is an early example of the surrealistic art that Dalí is most associated with. Combining different themes and motifs from possibly unrelated events, figures and dreams at times heavily influenced by the work of Sigmund Freud was de riguer among the Avant-Garde at the time.

The music switches style from the previous paintings to encourage listeners (and performers) to search within their own dreams and fantasies for clues to how the aural and visual relate.
