Vintage Silver Gelatin print, 1967, verso is the agency stamp Publifoto, Milan, Italy. The stamped press description reads: “Salvador Dali arriva in Francia a bordo della United States. Dali e stato salutato da amici e colleghi a bordo della nave United States. C’era il compositore e poeta Ethiopico Reginald Simones Ed il fidele amico E agente di Dali, Capitan Moore. Nella Foto : Roger Orlande e Salvador Dali? La Pettrice Italiana Adriana Rossi, L’inseparabile amica de Dali? Isabella e in suo ocelot”. It seems that Dali arrived in America on board the Liner “Francia” where he was greeted by many friends and colleagues such as the poet and composer, Reginald Ethiopia Simones and his fiend and faithful agent Captain John Peter Moore. The photo shows Dali standing and a young woman brandishes his famous cane. This is obviously part of a series of photographs and the note does not describe the scene exactly. Another photograph we have shows the same stamp but other parties portrayed.
Size: 297 x 225 mms
