The head-turning actress Gina Lolllobrigida was also a photojournalist, and included in her book of photos of the "world's most interesting men" were folks like Henry Kissinger, Paul Newman -- and Senor Salvador Dali! Her published tome is titled "Italia Mia." Here she is with the "Divine" Dali and Madame Dali.

"The fragile cannot endure
The wrecked and the jaded a place so impure
The static of this cruel world
Cause some birds to fly long before they've seen their day."
-Alter Bridge

Dali painted the portraits of many luminaries -- including cosmetics queen Helena Rubinstein. Here's a photo of Rubinstein and Dali standing before his portrait of her. In the color photo, notice how Dali has his powerful subject "chained" to a mountain by her own necklace! What statement might Dali have been making?

Dali's "Enigma of William Tell" has got to be his most phallic image ever! Just what do you imagine he was communicating with this grossly elongated buttock?

Párizsba tegnap beszökött az Ősz.
Szent Mihály útján suhant nesztelen,
Kánikulában, halk lombok alatt
S találkozott velem.

Ballagtam éppen a Szajna felé
S égtek lelkemben kis rőzse-dalok:
Füstösek, furcsák, búsak, bíborak,
Arról, hogy meghalok.
Any Endre: PÁRIZSBAN JÁRT AZ ŐSZ

How many Dali fans have admired his "Soft Construction with Boiled Beans; Premonition of Civil War" for years -- never realizing (until now?) that the central interior space is the shape of the map of Spain?!

Salvador Dali painted his "Impressions of Africa" -- but never once set foot on that continent! Does that make sense for the surrealist genius?

Ó, nézd, az idő csodaszép,
gyere ki a mezőre,
a napsugár, a szabad ég
várnak az élvezőre.

Kelyhet a virág tágra nyit,
friss szirma nesztelen nő,
kacéran bontja bájait,
akár egy meztelen nő.

What's your take on the meaning of the map of Africa, soft and dripping in the background of Dali's "Poetry of America" painting?

Did you know Dali was commissioned by the U.S. government to create a poster warning WWII soldiers against the dangers of venerial disease? In "Soldier, Take Warning" (1942) a wide-eyed soldier comes upon two ladies of the night. But can you discern the double-image that symbolizes the danger?

Ezer szeretőm van nekem
és én szeretem mindet
és mindenik tekintetem
mind szerelmi tekintet.

A föld szerelmét élvezem
s pusztulok élvezőben,
istenekkel szeretkezem
magamban a mezőben.

And this picture is called?
In Dali's dramatic mixed-media "Self-Portrait" of 1972, he threw real eggs filled with paint onto the canvas -- and pieces of egg shell actually remain stuck to the canvas to this day! Did the madman of Surrealism go too far??

A lover of shock value, Dali replaces a world globe with the head of a baby! Is that America or Europe crumbling on the child's forehead? Is this a political statement, or just a Dali dream gone dizzy?
Dali unabashedly plucked a tiger from a Ringling Brothers circus poster and recreated it in his 1944 "One Second Before Awakening from a Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomengranate." What do you think of Dali quoting exactly this iconic circus poster image?
Álmodom egy nőről, akit nem ismerek,
forró és különös, áldott, nagy Látomás,
aki sohasem egy, s aki sohase más,
aki engem megért, aki engem szeret.

Salvador Dali:
Figure With Drawers For A Four-Part Screen, 1934
Dali was obsessed with the praying couple in Millet's "Angelus" painting, but in Dali's '79 oil shown here, titled "Dawn, Noon, Sunset & Twilight," he shows only the female figure; the man has vanished. Speculation as to why?

Did you know that one of Dali's best and most precisely painted portraits of his wife -- "Portrait of Gala" of 1933 (Dali Museum, Florida) is just a little over 3 inches by 2 inches!
