“There is only one difference between a madman and me. I am not mad.”

This photograph of Salvador Dali was taken by Philippe Halsman depicting “a painter’s easel, three cats, a bucket of water, and Dalí himself floating in the air.” Halsman reported that it took 28 attempts to be satisfied with the result. Halsman and Dali eventually released a compendium of their collaborations in the 1954 book Dali’s Mustache, which features 36 different views of the artist’s distinctive mustache.
