Observations

The work "Anthropomorphic Beach", from 1928, has undergone several changes in the course of its existence, as can be seen in the photographs. Image 2 is the original, from 1928. Image 3 shows the intervention by the artist in 1948, and image 1 its current state. All that remains of the original version is the cork-object, which was in the top right of the original.
