Galarina is at once one of the best portraits that Salvador Dalí did of Gala and also a great homage to Raphael (Raffaello Sanzio, 1483-1520), one of the masters of the Italian Renaissance for whom he felt most devotion. The title and composition of Galarina are a direct allusion to Salvador Dalí's intention of emulating his admired master when the latter painted the portrait La Fornarina (c. 1518). That painting was not only a classic Venus, but also the unfinished portrait of Margherita Luti, daughter of a baker ("fornaio") from Trastevere, and lover and muse of Raphael.
