Salvador Dali: Dali from the Back Painting Gala from the Back Eternalized by Six Virtual Corneas Provisionally Reflected in Six Real Mirrors, 1973. (bron: WikiArt, collectie: Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation)
Salvador Dalí had a lifelong interest in stereoscopic perception, however it was not until the 1970’s that he began producing a series of stereoscopic paintings (18 stereoscopic paintings and studies –some unfinished– are listed in his output from that era).
Dalí incorporates binocular rivalry in this pair of stereoscopic paintings comprising the unfinished work,“Dalí from the Back Painting Gala from the Back Eternalized by Six Virtual Corneas Provisionally Reflected in Six Real Mirrors” (1977). Note the colors of the drapes and of Dalí’s shirt are swapped in the left and right paintings. This provides a lustrous sheen reminiscent of silk or velvet. There are other variations as well on the canvas, the walls, mirror frame, and of course that unintended by the unpainted faces in the right image (appearing on the left in this pair as they are swapped for cross-eye free-viewing).

Frida Kahlo: Living nature.
"Frida painted still lifes for lots of people when she was in her 50s. She was in such a pain at that time and cannot get out the house or even her bed. In this painting the sky is separated into day and night, and both sun and moon are present...an component exhibit in large portions of her paintings. The foods grown from the ground are connected by roots, which structure the words "Naturaleza Viva" (Living Nature) whereby the craftsman rejects the "dead" implications of "Naturaleza Muerta" (Still Life).
At the time Frida was painting for this work, she was recovering from her stay at ABC Hosptial. This painting was commissioned by the actress Dolores del Rio. After completed this portrait, Frida Kahlo wrote a letter to Dolores and ask her to please give her the payment as she promised beforehand. The amount was 1,000 pesos. In the letter Frida told Dolores that she needs the money desperately because she owes for the doctor and medical bills. She asked Dolores to give the payment to Diego's assistant when he delivered the painting to her.
Diego Rivera was very angry when he learned the content of Frida's letter to Dolores. He immediately send the money back to Dolores and apologized on behalf of Frida." (bron: fridakahlo.org)

Ava Gardner posing as Pandora for Man Ray, 1950.
"Although she sat for Man Ray, Gardner's portrait intended for the film (Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, hk) was rejected and replaced with a more de Chirico-esque painting by set designer Ferdinand Bellan." (bron: tout ceci est magnifique)
