  1. Wow! I was aware of Dali’s pre-Surrealist period, but never knew what you have illuminated. Thank you for this post!

    Re: Dali getting kicked out of the Academy when he said that there was no one there good enough to judge his work, can anyone recall the Academy members that expelled him? No, because they were not talented enough to make a name for themselves. Dali transcended their small mind school, and became one of the greatest artists ever.

    • You’ve very welcome, Newt. I, too, despite minoring in Art History, never knew about Dalí’s Realism paintings, which he apparently did his entire life.

      And re: his teachers’ names not being remembered while he and his art are, you made an excellent point.
