Horst P. Horst “Seafood Girl" from The Dream of Venus 1939
It’s Dali, perhaps the second-greatest artist of the 20th century after Duchamp.
When I was in Figueras over the summer, where Dali used to live, a waiter said of him “buen artista, mala persona”, “good artist, bad person.”
Dali was a Franquista.
I wonder if Duchamp was more sympathetic than Dali, he comes off as more sympathetic.
