Scene in a Cabaret – Salvador Dali

Scene in a Cabaret

Scene in a Cabaret” was completed by Salvador Dali in 1922

Behind the partly opened kitchen door I would hear the scurrying of those bestial women with red hands, I would catch glimpses of their heavy rumps and their hair straggling like manes; and out of the heat and confusion that rose from the conglomeration of sweaty women, scattered grapes, boiling oil, fur plucked from rabbits’ armpits, scissors spattered with mayonnaise, kidneys and the warble of canaries. Out of that whole conglomeration the imponderable and inaugural fragrance of the forthcoming meal was wafted to me, mingled with a kind of acrid horse smell.” – Salvador Dali
