Check out this piece of Salvador Dalí alleged art. It's pretty tame compared to some of the stuff on display at the Dalí Museum in Figueras, an hour and a half north of Barcelona by train. I am not a big fan of Dalí; he was a notorious publicity hound and his work is superficial, though he was imaginative and good at tricking the eye. Still, his real aim in life was to be rich and famous, live in high style, and épater les bourgeois, and at those feats he succeeded brilliantly.
