Gala, or The Healing Gradiva. The Surrealist Years in Paris

Source: Dali
Slice PDF May 26, 2014
<p>Éluard had affairs with other women and also wished that his own wife would live out her passions with other men. Between 1921 and 1924, the painter Max Ernst lived with the couple, and was at this time also Gala’s lover. Many Surrealists paid court to the beautiful Mrs Éluard. André Breton called her “the eternal woman”. As Gala fell in love with Dalí in 1929, Éluard considered it just a brief love affair. He was deceived: Gala separated from him. She remained at Dalí’s side until her death in 1982, marrying him at a church wedding in 1956, four years after Éluard’s death. Dalí continually stressed that he would never have become the Dalí that he was without this woman at his side. For him she was muse, model, and manager all in one. She organized Dalí’s business affairs because, as he confessed, he let everybody cheat him while Gala always saw through their plans.21 He honoured her importance for his artistic work by signing many of his paintings with “Gala Salvador Dalí”. Furthermore, Gala freed him of his impotence complex, something that had paralysed him since his early youth. On the one hand, Dalí traced his fear of sexuality back to his father, who had often elaborated on the dangers of venereal disease to him as a child, and, on the other, to his reading of books that portrayed sadomasochistic games, which he wrongly understood to be depictions of the real act of love: “At that time my libido degenerated into such a state of downright erotic idiocy as a result of this impotence-complex [...] I dressed myself as a king and masturbated and had I not found Gala, who helped me discover, so to speak, normal love, then it would have taken no more than two years for all my hallucinations to over-step the measure of paranoia to such an extent that they would have become psychopathological.”22 A painting that Dalí began in the autumn of 1929 carries the title</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615562-dali">See more</a>

4. Advanced C#

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>In this chapter, we cover advanced C# topics that build on concepts explored in previous chapters. You should read the first four sections sequentially; you can read the remaining sections in any order.</p><p>A delegate dynamically wires up a method caller to its target method. There are two aspects to a delegate: <em>type</em> and <em>instance</em>. A <em></em><em>delegate type</em> defines a <em>protocol</em> to which the caller and target will conform, comprising a list of parameter types and a return type. A <em>delegate instance</em> is an object that refers to one (or more) target methods conforming to that protocol.</p><p>A delegate instance literally acts as a delegate for the caller: the caller invokes the delegate, and then the delegate calls the target method. This indirection decouples the caller from the target method.</p><p>A delegate type declaration is preceded by the keyword <code>delegate</code>, but otherwise it resembles an (abstract) method declaration. For example:</p><p>To create a delegate instance, you can assign a method to a delegate variable:</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362587-c-4-0-in-a-nutshell-the-definitive-reference">See more</a>
