Dali had very successful exhibitions at Julien Levy and MoMA, he worked in fashion and jewelry, designed a pavilion for the 1939 World’s Fair, worked with the Metropolitan Opera, but also Hitchcock, Disney and the Marx Brothers. He found wealthy patrons, connected with Andy Warhol and anticipated Pop Art in many ways.
