Observations

In decorating the Castle of Púbol, Salvador Dalí took advantage of various original features of the building. In this case the painter completely reinterpreted one of the coats of arms on the basis of the musical score, in patterned form, of the round "Belle, Bonne, Sage" by the French composer Baude Cordier (1380-1440).
