"....
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).
