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.
