OP Re: Dali: "I don't have any basis whatever for judging what kind of a genius he might have been.
The Guardian art critic Hughes went on to say that Dali held court at the St. Regis Hotel in New York and favored his visitors with "gusts of the worst foul breath" imaginable.
I will dig up the actual quote from The Guardian and post it to give Hughes the credit he deserves*.
It sounds like Dali brought a breath of fresh air to the art world, but gusts of foul breath to his fans.
Only a fan could get past the master's breath to reach the master's vision, it would seem.
*I don't know much about Dali myself except I own a limited edition pack of Tarot Cards he designed. The Tarot Cards are suitably dark and mysterious ... a Daliance with the devil?
