    Salvador Dali’s 1973 Playboy photoshoot 

    For his photo shoot for Playboy magazine, Salvador Dali, long-time Playboy photographer Pompeo Posar, a gaggle of Playboy Bunnies and a giant egg headed to Cadaqués, a seaside town in Spain near where Dali lived in Port Lligat, a small village on a bay next to the town. The event would turn the sleepy village upside down during the shoot and local Dali-devotees would wait outside his home so that they could pay homage to the Surrealist by chanting “Master! Master!” whenever he left the residence to go to work under the blistering hot Spanish sun.

    Dirty Dali 

    —Via ArtHistoryLuv/You Tube:

    In this intimate film art critic Brian Sewell gives his sympathetic private view of a man whose life and work were surrendered to sexual obsessions.

    Salvador Dali is one of the most popular of all Surrealist painters, yet behind his image of dream and fantasy was a deeply troubled man of ambiguous sexuality and Freudian confusion. In this intimate film art critic Brian Sewell – who knew Dali at the point when his genius and reputation were both exhausted – gives his sympathetic private view of a man whose life and work were surrendered to sexual obsessions.

    Between 1968 and 1971, Sewell spent four intensely memorable summers with Dali in the artist’s Spanish home town. When he knew Dali, the artist was living entirely freed from the constraints of morality, respectability and logic. At first hand, Sewell witnessed the day-to-day routine and recalls the details that vividly and dramatically illustrate both Dali’s extravagant, flamboyant genius and the personal demons – sexual and psychological – that drove him and his work.
