The photo above was taken during the lavish and legendary Surrealist Ball Party hosted by French socialite Baroness Marie-Helene de Rothschild at the magnificent Chateau de Ferrieres in the countryside outside Paris. The coat-and-tie and formal dress dinner party was held on December 12, 1972, attended by members of the Parisian high-society. But, a Surrealist Ball Party would never be complete without the presence of master surrealist painter Salvador Dali, pictured above looking positively elegant and regal at 68!
