Piet,

When an artist of Dali's ability speaks, his talent as a painter and his insights into art bear serious consideration by any artist below that level of ability. In such a case it would be more appropriate to listen to him than to try to find ways to argue with him. Do you feel he could have learned anything about art from you? Or do you think he might possibly have known something about art and painting that you do not?
