Dali initially met his significant other Gala in 1929. This artistic creation was made around the same time and is believed to be an impression of the suggestive change that Dali experienced when he met her. The principle yellow region speaks to the craftsman himself dozing. Out of his head comes the vision, most likely speaking to a sexual dream, of a bare female, taking after his darling spouse, attracted to male genitalia, apparently Dali's. The Great Masturbator is notable for celebrating something that is generally scorned and is among Dali's most questionable works.
