Dalí’s powerful antiwar statement, entitled, Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonition of Civil War), c. 1936, was brushed just prior to the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). The painting depicts a tormented figure tearing itself apart in what Dalí called “a delirium of autostrangulation.”
