Industrial Palace in the Dalí home

December 22, 2019

Dated 1931, this old photograph depicts Gala and Salvador Dalí in their Portugese house in Portlligat. On the wall: Fritz Kahn’s Man as Industrial Palace in a French version (L’homme comme palais de l’industrie). The Kahn infographic was first published in the book Das Leben des Menschen (Life of Man), volume 3, in 1926, and translated into English and French afterwards.
