Dalí produced this work, as homage to the painter Mark Rothko, from a digital interpretation of Lincoln’s face obtained by the North American cybernetic Leon D. Harmon. Once again, Dalí appears to us as an initiator and presents his concept of the double image to us in a new way. Lincoln’s face is seen in small format in the lower left-hand side of the work, where the figure is also repeated, in a changed pose, of Gala. In the upper section, in a magnificent twilight, Dalí refers to his well-known oil painting Christ of Saint John of the Cross.
