The party is surrealism but dem frogs is real


I was trying to find the source of an anecdote recounted in the opening of Peter Rosen's documentary "Who Gets To Call It Art?" about Salvador Dali. The story details how when Dali appeared on Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show," he painted the host's jacket, then refused to return it unless Carson paid him five thousand dollars.


I couldn't find the video clip of this, but instead found this piece of history, that I thought was definitely worth sharing.


Tomorrow: Dinner at Magritte's.
