Lincoln in Dalivision

by Salvador Dali (1976)

Lincoln in Dalivision uses a photomosaic technique to show two images. From up close, the painting looks like a nude woman. From far away, it looks like Abraham Lincoln.

In Lincoln’s Farewell Address to Springfield, he said:

My friends, no one, not in my situation, can appreciate my feeling of sadness at this parting. To this place, and the kindness of these people, I owe everything. Here I have lived a quarter of a century, and have passed from a young to an old man. Here my children have been born, and one is buried. I now leave, not knowing when, or whether ever, I may return, with a task before me greater than that which rested upon Washington. Without the assistance of the Divine Being who ever attended him, I cannot succeed. With that assistance I cannot fail. Trusting in Him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good, let us confidently hope that all will yet be well. To His care commending you, as I hope in your prayers you will commend me, I bid you an affectionate farewell.

Matthew 6:21

For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
