Have no fear of perfection, you'll never reach it.
|Galatea of the Spheres, 1952|
This is a portrait of Salvador Dali's wife Gala. Theirs was quite the steamy love affair. Dali seduced Gala away from fellow Surrealist artist Paul Eluard. They were married in Paris in 1934, and Dali considered Gala his world and his savior. He even signed some of his work with her name. He bought her a castle in the small town of Pubol, Spain, The Gala Dali Castle, with its one function being a place suitable for her rest and refuge.
Wow! Where has all the romance gone.
