Yves Tanguy’s 1937 work ” Toilette de l’aire ”
This well-know French surrealist, ( 1900-1955), although obviously influenced by Dali and after being mentored by the Dadaist and early Surrealist artist Andre Breton; made his mark on art history with a derivative painting style that suggests arcane relationships between imaginary objects and beings set in vast, dreamlike, otherworldly landscapes.

Just one of the remarkable manifestations on DaliKrab day, a bizarre holiday invented by fellow Dadaist and Absurdist Justynn Tyme.
You could do worse than give yourself a Salvadorian Kit kat krab break from the stalemate of normality and have a seafood butchers at all this year’s Dali Krab crustacean crossover expansions into other realms of melting grandfather clocks, live crabs in vending machines * etc etc @ blog

– probably justabout the most disturbing little film you’re likely to see ’til daliKrab day 2012. Hopefully a temporary public artwork installation and the creatures let loose again.
