Dali & Picasso

This is a comic about Dali and Picasso's first encounter. They had an on-again, off-again friendship. Dali would sometimes praise Picasso and sometimes denigrate him. I think he said whatever would get him press. Picasso admired his technical virtuosity, but said Dali was like an out-board motor -- always running.

Dali was always performing outrageous antics. Was he crazy? Or crazy like a fox. His actions always got attention and press. He was the most well-known of the surrealists and never had problem selling his work.

Reading your art history comics, I'm amazed that the lives of these Big Name artists were so intertwined. Was the art world smaller then or dig genius just gravitate towards genius? Either way, it's fascinating.
