This work was used for the cover of the the special publication marking the fiftieth anniversary of the magazine "Vogue" in France.

In 1981 the painting was altered and the characters adorning the pedestal and the central horizontal object were added. (Robert Descharnes, "Dalí, l’oeuvre et l’homme". Lausanne, Edita, 1984, p. 431).
