In describing Bayer's work of this dream montage, Cohen states: The photomontages begin with an adaptation of the same chromolithograph Marcel Duchamp had used for his readymade of 1914, Pharmacie, which shows the sun breaking through the clouds overlooking a stagnant pond. Over the center of this pedestrian image Bayer has suspended from a rope anchored in infinite space an elaborate gilt frame that isolates a portion of the scene. After photographing each element and pasting them together, "the string was painted in" and the whole photographed again. This photomontage, ... although the third made by Bayer, was installed by him as the opening of the series when it was published... . This first image is clearly an ironic answer to the question: what makes art? Art is precisely anything that is framed and asserted to be valuable, even if it is vulgar and pedestrian.
Another vintage print of this collage is in the collection of the Museum Folkwang, Essen.
