Beach with Telephone.

Name: Beach with Telephone.
Artist: Salvador Dali
Location: The Tate Gallery, London
Year: 1938

Dali loved the telephone and it appeared famously in his Lobster Telephone (1936).

In this foreboding painting the phone can be seen as the connection between politicians, possibly Chamberlain and Hitler.

The phone hangs delicately on a crutch indicating the fragility of the situation. Snails crawl up the crutch. The mountains in the background are reflected in the lake beneath the phone to give a double image: the lake can also be seen as a fish with the ripples on it forming the scales and the jagged rock to the left forming a tail.
