Just a pretty gif

(Muchacha en la Ventana)
Oil on stone- cardboard (105 x 74,5 cm.)
Reina Sofía National Museum

This is one of Dalí´s most famous pictures, painted when he was only 20. His contacts with surrealism were not yet influencing his paintings. He painted a piece of a mixture of colors and simplicity in this composition. The special feature in this canvas is the female model, his sister, who appears only from the back and we can´t see her face. We would think that she is contemplating the landscape, the same as the onlooker when he contemplates this painting.
