Inspiration: Style Icon Salvador Dali - Living Art

In Voluptas Mors

A famous collaboration between the Dali and Phillipe Halsman, a surrealistic portrait of Dali beside a large skull, in fact a tableau vivant composed of seven nudes. Halsman took three hours to arrange the models according to a sketch by Dali.

Dali and Halsman are two artists which I happen to absolutely adore individually. And as a matter of fact I'm quite fond of their collaborations. It's in the idea of one person that another is able to capture perfection. Such mutual admiration between both collaborative parties must be amazing. Ah... to trust another with your idea without question. It's a wonder if that can exist in modern times among creative types. Needless to say  this image has always been a great deal of inspiration for moi as it embodies the reminder of life, beauty and mortality merely a glimpse away.

Enjoy the art,
