Salvador Dali, Paris, 1932-33, estate Brassai Succession, Paris

Ciwt was interested to see these portraits of Salvador Dali looking so 'normal.' 

They are part of the captivating and comprehensive Brassai show at SFMOMA.  Brassai (born Gyyla Halasz in Hungary) is one of the most prominent figures of twentieth century photography, best known for his provocative and enigmatic images of Parisian life between the two world wars and for powerful portraits of his avante-garde friends -Picasso, Matisse, Henry Miller and Salvador Dali among them. If you look to the left at the bottom photograph you can see Brassai at work in the mirror.

* Dali was born Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dali i Domenech, 1st Marquis of Dali de Pubol in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain and known professionally as Salvador Dali
