of how some Dali prints recently came into my life and the strange people and things that brought me to them. Then, the strange people and things that Dali brought to me. It is unfolding as we speak with more to follow later…
as the Great Dali Expert recently said to me:
“nothing about Dali has ever been simple.”
It just so happens that my favorite most obnoxious Dali moments also happened during my favorite year, 1936:
In 1936, Dalí took part in the London International Surrealist Exhibition. His lecture, titled Fantômes paranoiaques authentiques, was delivered while wearing a deep-sea diving suit and helmet. He had arrived carrying a billiard cue and leading a pair of Russian wolfhounds, and had to have the helmet unscrewed as he gasped for breath. He commented that “I just wanted to show that I was ‘plunging deeply’ into the human mind.”
