Dali avant le bainAbout this photograph
Port Lligat, Cadaquès. SpainThis photo predates the photo of Dali in the water. The promotional benefit of this idea finally convinced Dali to overcome his fear of water and take part in the shot planned by Jean Dieuzaide. In 1953 whilst travelling to the Levante region of Spain to write his book for the publishers Arthaud and after being refused several times by Dali, Jean Dieuzaide had the idea to stop in the painter?s home village in Cadaquès to try to take his photo. The idea of this series ' Dali in the Water ' completely ignored the master?s aversion to this liquid element: also it is without doubt what makes this series so exceptional.YellowKorner is offering a new series by Jean Dieuzaide called ' Dali in the Water ' for the 20 th anniversary of the disappearance of Dali the surrealist artist.Read more Read less
