Salvador Dali has always been interested in photography, animation and cinema. He himself is known not only as an artist, but also as a screenwriter, production designer and author of a well-known advertising logo. In his paintings, he repeatedly applied any achievements in the field of each sphere of visual art and sometimes in a completely new way. This is interesting for his creation, bearing a very simple name - "Chair".

This painting was painted in 1975. At first, it attracts attention by the fact that it consists of two parts, very similar in appearance. But the viewer continues to look further and sees many differences.

Left half. It depicts a girl turned to the artist, whose hand with a brush we see, her back. This child is dressed in a classic sailor suit. She has a simple blue bow on her head, her hair curly. She sits on the shore and, apparently, looks at a huge chair, hovering in the sky, slightly covered with clouds. Or maybe on tables or an island - that same darkish stretch of land in the sea.

Right half, lighter. Almost the same thing, but the girl turned her head slightly to the right, and the hand of the artist, who had put on a clean shirt for the first half, did not block the bottle with a red label on the nearest table. And the sky became clear - on it you can not see either a cloud or those clouds.

What is the catch of this rather simple picture? Both parts of the "Chair" make up the so-called stereo pair. That is, if the viewer begins to look at this work Dali stereoscope (creator Charles Winston, 1837), he, in theory, will see only one three-dimensional image - “Chair” in three dimensions, “Chair” in 3D. So the result of an artist’s funny experiment can be appreciated only by a modern person, realizing the fact that one can gracefully joke without even knowing about it.
