"Apparition of Face and Fruit Dish on a Beach" (1938) is a painting by the Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí.

The picture shows a fruit on in a wine glass. A human face (which would be seen again in on of Dalí's later works, "The Endless Enigma") is seen below the fruit, the handle of the wine glass acting as the face's nose bridge. The texture of the face is the sand of the beach. On the sand is a cloth and a snapped rope. There is also a dog across the background of the painting.

The painting is currently on display at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut.
