Crutching Your Own Solutions

Salvador Dali (1904-89)
Soft Self-Portrait with Fried Bacon

Dali himself -- Modern Art Surrealist Master Painter -- styles his self-portrait as "an anti-psychological self-portrait, instead of painting the soul, or the inner of one-self, to paint solely the appearance, the cover, my soul's glove. This glove of my soul can be eaten and is even a little sharp, like high-bred game; therefor ants appear together with the fried bacon. As the most generous of all painters I continuously offer myself as food and thus give our era the most delicious delicacies."
