(Soft Self-portrait, by Salvador Dali)
Salvador Dali A Soft Self Portrait. The surrealism of Salvador Dali knew no boundaries. It went straight from his paintings and into his personal life. Everything was a spectacle. The public loved Dali for it, but journalists always wrestled with his showmanship, wondering how to extract serious answers from the man. And, of course, someone like Dali posed challenges for biographers.
