While Dali is usually linked to ‘Surreal era and surrealism’, he did paint a self-portrait in the Cubist style. In this painting, Dali shows himself in a torn-up, broken, and fragmented, geometric style, a characteristic of Cubism. Dali’s face is at the centre of the painting, which can be easily identified, as compared to the rest of his body which is fragmented and seems like it is a newspaper cut out into numerous pieces.
