Dalí “one of the 20th century’s nastiest cultural products”

Standard

According to Jonathan Jones

Wallis Simpson and Dalí were both habitues of a brittle elite world that could flirt with Hitler as if the fate of millions of people were a sick joke. After the war, Dalí was happy and rich in Franco’s Spain. In New York, he did this sketch for the Duchess of Windsor.

I used to try to see the best in Dalí, but increasingly he looks like one of the 20th century’s nastiest cultural products.
