Illumined Pleasures is an oil painting produced in 1929 by Spanish painter Salvador Dali.
The luminous imagery projected on to the boxes of theater like structure dominated the painting and its composition such that the title of this picture coincides close to it. Dali had to show a disjunction between the illusion world and the reality which he experienced in the darkness of a theater. The dimensions of the painting Illumined Pleasures were 34.7 x 23.8 cm or 9 3/8 in x 13 3/4 in.
Dali’s head appears through the middle theater shaped like box placed in the middle while universal dreams and anxiety role plays below. This scene displays the script of Un Chien andalou which was being shoot and published in La Revolution surrealist later in a journal. Many other Surrealist painters had used these theater shaped like box in their paintings.
