In the dry point Queen Isolde and her Daughter, Dalí juxtaposes Queen Isolde; the main character of our story, with her younger and beautiful daughter. A large harp dominates the image as both a reminder that it was Tristan who taught her the instrument and as a symbol of their love. Dalí’s famous “crutch” holds up one end of the harp as a hint that this love, so beautiful to Isolde, is flimsy and without support. The contrast between the two women’s appearances makes us realize the dreamlike nature of Isolde's blind love and the fleeting nature of youth.
