Dalí's experiences in the United States had a profound impact on the aesthetic development and content of his art. Following a dramatic escape from occupied France through Portugal and Spain, he and Gala relocated to Virginia and then New York, where fortune and opportunity awaited them. Dalí immersed himself in a wealth of career-transforming projects during the eight years he stayed in the U.S., including film and theatrical productions, illustrated books, critical and autobiographical writing, and numerous portrait commissions from society's elites. Leaving behind the chaos of Europe, Dalí believed that America offered the last resort for creative freedom. The present work is a representation of this sentiment, annotated with Dalí's prophecy of Allied Victory.
