DALI AND PICASSO - TOO DICKISHLY GOOD TO BE TRUE

When we at NYD ran across this photo we were tickled pink and throbby. Reportedly near sexless Salvador Dali draws a piece of dingus art on the forehead of his wife and signs it "Picasso," so tasty. Alas, also so fake.

Of course Sal deserves enormous credit for his iconic mustache (which totally looks like someone defaced a photo of an old queen taking a whiz in an electrical socket) but he cannot be credited with the above pictured art act.

What is the provenance of this work? Based on Medusa Sleep, we first saw it here at Imgur, but the "comments" provide no real info except that the commenters are dopes. Some debunking (and some also not-too-clever comments) is offered up at Reddit, but sadly, the deceptive dick in this photoshop story may never be known.

For some authentic wang-on-the-face-style surrealism take a look at the work of Danish artist Wilhelm Freddie, (excellent artist, so-so mustache). His 1936 piece entitled Sexparalysappeal (shown at left) may be as close as we'll ever get to a really important exploration of the meaning of a penis drawn on a surrealist lady's head.
