-Sigmund Freud, in a letter to Stefan Zweig. (source: wikiquote)
Regardless of what you think about Freud, his writings were the basis upon which the Surrealists built their movement. Known as a bit of a crotchety old man, I was excited to learn that the man himself was impressed by Salvador Dali over other surrealists. I guess the millions of people out there who only like the work of the Mustachioed One among all his contemporaries are in the some esteemed company. And to be quite frank, Mr. Dali’s genius can be seen in an overview of his huge body of amazing work in a number of disciplines, just about all of which demands attention, reflection, and contemplation. He was, indeed, surrealism.
