So, wow, this _was_ a miracle! Dali handed it in . . .  in time! They

were luckier than the Italian Government, who in the 1950s asked him

to illustrate the Divine Comedy within 1965, the (officially supposed)

700th anniversary of the Poet's birth, and, well . . .

:-D

 

P.S. Hi Joseph, glad to hear from you back!
