This work is a preparatory study for the cover of the catalogue for the Salvador Dalí exhibition at the Julien Levy Gallery in New York in 1939.

"Life Magazine reported his latest triumph: 'no exhibition had been so popular since Whistler's Arrangement in Black and Grey No. 1: The Artist's Mother was shown in 1934. The crowd gaped open-mouthed at pictures with bewildering titles like Debris of an Automobile Giving Birth to a Blind Horse Biting a Telephone or The One-Eyed Idiot. A fortnight later, Dalí, one of the richest young painters in the world, had sold 21 of his works to private collectors for over $25,000.'"
