Salvador Dali on Picasso

From Mani Deli

Published before 2005

When Picasso exhibited his Fisherman of Antibes Dali wrote in his telegram:

"Pablo thanks!
Your last ignominious paintings have killed modern art. But for you with the taste and moderation that are the very virtues of French prudence we should have had painting which was more and more ugly for at least one hundred years... you... have achieved the limits and the final consequences of the abominable in a mere few weeks... etc."

Signed S. Dali
