The painting comprises hundreds, if not thousands, of painted eyeballs that look like googley eyes from toys and dolls. From far away it looks like just a wave of pastel and grey shades, but upon closer inspection, the viewer will see the eyes.
The painting was acquired by the Rose Art Museum in 1993. It was a gift from Mrs. William H. Fineshriber, Jr. of New York. Doll's Eyes was part of a Gallagher's 2013 solo show at the Tate Modern titled "Your truths are self-evident. Ours, a mystery."
