In order to sell his book, The World of Salvador Dalí , he lay in a hospital bed in a Manhattan bookstore surrounded by fake doctors and nurses, hooked up to a machine that measured his brain waves. Anyone who bought a copy of the book also got a copy of the machine’s readings. He later went back to cauliflowers, this time filling a limo with them and driving through the streets of Paris, handing them out to very confused Parisians.

The Hellenistic period is usually said to begin with the conquests of Alexander the Great, around 330 ., during which time Greek art and culture spread to other lands. The sculptures of Hellenistic times tends to be much more active and intense, often in groups engaged in violent activity. One of the best examples of this style is the sculptural decorations of the Great Altar of Zeus at Pergamum. The first image shows the goddess Athena gripping a rebellious Giant by the hair; the second shows a close-up of Artemis' dog biting another giant.

An extension to the museum building contains a room dedicated to optical illusions , stereographs , and anamorphic art created by Dalí. The artist's final works, including his last oil painting, The Swallow's Tail (1983), [1] : 42 are on display here.

The painting now hangs in the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida which provides a permanent home for the collection of A. Reynolds Morse & Eleanor R. Morse .

Dalí was a print maker, painter, filmmaker, photographer, designer, jeweler, sculptor, an artist in every sense of the word….but most importantly, he remains one of the 20th century’s lasting artistic master.
