Observations

The following note is retained on file by the Fondazione Thyssen-Bornemisza: "Mrs. Bas Dalí" (sic), a cousin of the artist and the former owner of the painting, told us the following story: The painting was given her by the father and the sister of Salvador Dali, as a present for her first communion from...(sic) then on it hung in the nursery room. To the collage also belonged a spoon which was glued onto the canvas. Once the little girl needed a spoon and so broke it from the painting. The painting was unsigned and in 1955 Mrs. Bas Dali asked the artist to sign it, which he did with his last name" (C. Green, The European avant-gardes: art in France and Western Europe 1904-c. 1945. Zwemmer, London, 1995).
