Teenage Dali

After exhaustive investigations, Spanish art experts have finally confirmed that this oil painting, The Intrautirine Birth of Salvador Dali (sic), is a genuine early work by a teenage Salvador Dali. It was bought in a Spanish antique shop in 1988 for a mere 25,000 pesetas (about $200). For years it was dismissed as a fake, because it bears the date 1896, eight years before Dali was born. It turns out the date was Dali's joke. I suspect the angels and the volcano were too. CLICK for technical details.
