Dali, Freud and Creative writing

 
I heard an interesting snippet on the radio, though I don’t recall every word – forgive any inaccuracies. It was an excerpt from writing by a British friend of Salvador Dali’s. Turns out the artist was a big fan of Sigmund Freud. Freud was eighty-two at the time, living in Nazi ruled Vienna and Dali went to meet him. He missed him in Vienna and they finally met in London. Freud’scomment about Dali (from the look in his eyes as he sketched) was that he seemed crazed and fanatical. Dali’s comment about Freud is expressed in the way he portrayed him – as a snail-like skull with a spiral-shaped brain.
