"The antipope" by Max Ernst is one of my favourite paintings. Despite having a religious type of title, it has nothing to do with religion. The canvas indeed represents the decaying of the artist's relationship with his wife Peggy... The irreconcilable separation between the two is enhanced by the diagonal lance that separates them, the only thing that still keeps them togheter is their daughter Pegeen, represented by the figure in the middle. He represent himself like a metamorphosed horse creature, the favourite animal of his new companion, represented in the action of hugging him and the alienated horse woman represent a vision of Guggenheim like in "Attirement of the Bride", now miserable and not as sumptuous.
