Observations

This work is known as "When It Falls, It Falls" on the basis of the annotation we found on one of the tables, which refers to the Catalan philosopher Francesc Pujols (1882-1962), much admired by Dalí. The artist has taken advantage of a painting of Flemish origin and "Dalified" it, a process which he also adopted for the painting with catalogue number 864.
